Researchers teamed up with a not-for-profit animal organization that trains therapy dogs to see if an animal-assisted intervention is feasible and effective at reducing stress in this setting. Results showed that levels of the stress biomarkers cortisol, alpha-amylase, and immunoglobulin A, significantly decreased following a 20-minute intervention with these dogs, regardless of post-traumatic stress symptom severity.
