Blue Promise: Animal Assisted Therapy

Does your therapist have four legs? Hear how animals – especially dogs – can make a difference for people recovering from health conditions.

How does pet therapy work and what makes a dog a good match for volunteer work? In honor of “Dog Therapy Appreciation Day” on April 11th, Dr. McCoy talks with Carianne Fisher, Executive Director for Therapet, about animal assisted therapy.

Blue Promise is an online video blog that aims to address complicated health issues with candid conversations from subject matter experts. New editions are published regularly and are hosted by Dr. Dan McCoy, President of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas.
