Covid-19 has put a huge amount of stress on all of us, whether we’ve suffered from the virus or not. Uncertainty over our health, work, finances, and relationships, and not being able to see family and friends has taken its toll on just about everyone.

It’s no wonder people have turned to pets for companionship, fun, stress relief and entertainment in large numbers.
