“Dog as My Doctor – Cat as My Nurse” Reveals How Your Pet Can Give You a New Leash on Life

Tired of taking pills and spending your hard-earned money on medical care?  If so, you might want to adopt a cat or a dog. According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), over 150 million Americans have cats or dogs. Studies show that pet guardians visit doctors’ offices less than their non-animal loving friends. But even current pet parents may not be maximizing the full health benefits of those relationships. That’s why Carlyn Montes De Oca, an animal-human health expert and author of Dog as My Doctor, Cat as My Nurse (April 18, 2017), offers surprising ways that our furry best friends can make us healthier and happier.

Interviewed by The Association of American Retired Persons (AARP), which is 40 million members strong, Carlyn explores the many ways our animal companions enhance our health and well-being by relaying heart-warming stories of healing, transformation, and redemption from everyday people to New York Times bestselling author Jack Canfield.

Before her career in holistic health, Carlyn worked in the motion picture industry film editing on movies such as Honey I Shrunk the KidsAlive, and Three Men and a Little Lady. The high stress of the industry, which negatively impacted her health, finally prompted her to pursue a long held desire to do something more meaningful for others and the world.  Today, she is the founder of The Animal-Human Health Connection, which focuses on how animals enhance human health, happiness, and longevity.

Hoping to inspire more people to adopt a pet who has the capacity to add years to their life, she is eager to share what a terrific life line pets can be.
