Unleashing your petential

Owning a pet can be great fun, good for our health and may make us better people as well. In this fun series, Dr. Katrina and David Whitehill, two of Australia’s most trusted animal experts collaborate to explore, celebrate and explain pets. Owning a pet can teach children about the responsibilities of life and mutual trust Children exposed to education programs with animals can display higher levels of empathy for humans Pets can help people who suffer from ADD improve their concentration People with pets can suffer lower instances of allergies Parents whose children have pets are likely to get more help with household chores       Episodes Unleashing your Petential Pets are proven to encourage exercise. The likelihood of achieving the recommended level of physical activity per week is seven times higher for dog owners than non-dog owners. 2.  The Pawsome companion Research shows that 70.5% of pet owners rarely feel lonely compared with 58.3% of non pet owners. That companionship can boost your overall mood particularly in sick people. 3. Pets – The Best Medicine Studies have shown that pet owners have been found to be at lower risk of cardiovascular disease than non pet owners. Pet owners visit the doctor and use fewer medications than non-pet owners. Pet owners are also much less likely to die in the 12 months following a heart attack than non pet owners. 4. Canine community Pets are good for the community and meeting people. Pets encourage social interaction and improve perceptions of neighbourhood friendliness. Research from The University of Western Australia found that over 50% of dog owners met people in their neighbourhood as a result of owning a pet and 80% of dog owners talked to others while walking their dogs. 5. Best friends forever Pets teach responsibility and help children to develop nurturing and social skills. They learn empathy about life and the death of a pet is often the first experience a child may have dealing with death. Pets encourage children to exercise and physical activity results in social, mental and physical health benefits Most of all pets are fun for all of us, for all ages and from all walks of life – they simply make us smile and ask for so little in return. We are blessed that advances in veterinary care and nutrition mean that our pets are living longer than ever before and giving us more quality time with our precious companions.

Heartfoods

Heartfoods

Heart Disease remains the number one killer of Australian people, this is directly impacted by the foods we eat and our consumption of saturated fats is too high. Heart Foundation NSW through its healthier oils program is making real changes to the health of Australian people by working with major food service partners to make simple changes to the meals they prepare. Cessnock Council, Panthers and Compass Group have already switched to healthier cooking oils and as a result removed tonnes of saturated fats from the diets of their customers. It’s a great public health outcome. http://www.heartfoundation.org.au  Re: Letter of Support Igloo Media The Heart Foundation NSW has been working with Graeme and the Igloo team over the past four years, developing video content to support some of our key public health programs. In particular, Igloo has worked with us on a number of our nutrition projects to develop a range of products as part of our communication strategy. This has involved work on our Healthier Oils Program, which aims to encourage food service providers to switch to the use of healthier cooking oils that are lower in saturated and trans fats. On this program we have filmed case studies with Cessnock City Council, Penrith Panthers Leagues Club and Compass Australia which has not only featured on our website but also as video content for Airline companies and other media distributors. He has assisted us in distilling information on our Healthy Kids Website into simple bite-sized chunks that offer practical advice to help busy mums make healthier food choices for their kids, and has filmed practical ways to hide more vegetables in family favorites like Spaghetti Bolognese. Having this content has enabled us to attract new partners to the program and to develop deeper relationships with existing partners. Throughout the time we have worked with him, we have found Graeme to be very flexible in his approach, thorough in his preparation and careful to ensure his clients are happy. He often brings new ideas to the table, but he is also sensitive to the nuances of health messaging, making his guidance contextually appropriate. His gentle but confident manner is invaluable in putting people at ease in front of the camera, particularly when they have little or no experience in this area. One of the great advantages of also working with Graeme is that he is willing to share his own connections to help stretch our message further. We would have no hesitation in recommending Graeme and the Igloo team as a preferred supplier.
