Studies have shown that pet ownership renders cardiovascular benefits such as lower systolic blood pressure, plasma cholesterol (men only) and triglyceride levels. Pet owners also exercise more, and it was hypothesized that exercise could be the common factor in explaining pet owners’ lower cardiovascular risk profile. Heart disease and stroke take lives prematurely and they are the world’s No. 1 killer, claiming 17.5 million lives every year. In Singapore, 16 people die of cardiovascular disease daily. Woof-a-thon held in 2015 and 2017 with great success and overwhelming response from the public and media. 2019 will be the 3rd instalment of Woof-a-thon and we aim to make it bigger and better, to reach out to a wider audience on the importance of heart health.
