How Pets Make Us Feel Good

By Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Need a pick me up to keep stress or sadness at bay? Book a bonding session with your pet!

Those of us with pets know they have a magical ability to make us laugh, smile or just be happy, and while you can probably think of a dozen ways they do this, you might be surprised to learn that hormones are involved.

Oxytocin is a hormone secreted by the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland. It’s sometimes known as the “cuddle hormone”, because it is released when people snuggle up or bond socially and can induce strong feelings of love and trust.

Sneak a Peek at the new, Kristen Levine Pet Living

By Wednesday, August 6, 2014

Welcome to the sneak peek of Kristen Levine Pet Living! I’ll be making a public announcement very soon.

I had an inspiring “ah-ha moment” a little over a year ago when I thought about my career path, beginning with the SPCA Tampa Bay many years ago.

You see, back then I knew that homeless pets needed us. But now, I know that WE need THEM just as much.

So, I’ve created a blog, (and with your help, a community), to show how our lives are better with pets, in so many ways.

It’s also a new way to leverage my experience serving pet and veterinary companies through my company, Fetching Communications. Now, I can help pets, people AND pet-positive companies all at the same time!

In this video, I thank the many friends, family and colleagues who have supported me in developing Kristen Levine Pet Living. Also, I show off the look and feel of the blog and share my intention to bring pets and people together for better health and happiness.
