VolunteerTalk: Using Pet Therapy to Relieve Pain

On May 28, 2015, the CAHHS Volunteer Services Office received the following inquiry from Mary Binkowski, Volunteer Coordinator, from Antelope Valley Hospital in Lancaster, California:

“I heard there is a pain chart that allows a patient to request a visit from pet therapy dogs.  Has anyone heard of this and if so, could you please share. 

Thank you.”
