GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Pets make great companions, but can they also provide some therapy?

Alicia Junghans and her therapy dog, Lucy, tell FOX 17 how our little loved ones can also help ease our minds.

Alicia is the owner of ComForcare Senior Services and is set to speak at Covenant Village of the Great Lakes with her presentation “Hedge Hogs to Horses” on May 23. She talks about the benefits of using animals as medicine and how Lucy helped her with her own personal needs when she lost her father and brother.
