Nearly 85 million American families have at least one pet. Animals can provide unconditional love, but did you know they may also be good for your health?

The Doctors are joined by Dr. Freda Lewis-Hall, from Pfizer, and Michelle, who has an emotional support dog named Gordon. They discuss the health benefits of having a pet including possibly lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels, reduced risk of having a heart attack, a boost in mood and even helping to alleviate stress levels.
