Pet therapy with bunnies at Grove House

Residents at Grove House Care Home near Birkenhead enjoyed special moments today as gorgeous Benjamin and Marble the flop eared rabbits joined them for a pet therapy session.

Pet therapy is based on the human-animal bond, and interacting with a friendly pet has been proven to be beneficial both physically and mentally. It can help reduce blood pressure and improve overall cardiovascular health, as well we releasing endorphins that produce a calming effect. This can help alleviate pain, reduce stress, and improve overall psychological state.

Residents took much pleasure from their time with the gentle bunnies, stroking and petting them and enjoying their company.
