Pet Therapy is available to our patients at Covenant Children's. We have the pet handlers and their pets come to both Covenant Children's and Medical Center on a regular basis and also take special requests from patients and their family.
When a child is hospitalized, all the comforts of home are gone. Many times, the bond that children form with their pets is very intimate; they miss their pets when they are hospitalized. Having time to play with the pets, regardless that the pet is not their specific family pet, can have great therapeutic benefits. It is important to us as at Covenant Children's to cater to these bonds in order to provide a better health care experience for children.
If you have questions about pet therapy or want to request a pet therapy session, call 806-725-0548.
