You’re listening to Preferred Company with Joel Markel, president and founder of Preferred Home Health Care and Nursing Services along with Marianne Levy.

She looks at how our loving bonds with our beloved animals positively affecting every part of our well being. By blending science and heartwarming stories, she explains that optimal health is not found in a pill, but in the touch of an innocent paw, at the receiving end of a friendly snout or riding shotgun in our cars with ears flapping in the wind. In an age when more than half of all adults come down with a chronic degenerative disease, Carlyn believes how to take cats and dogs wisdom and apply it to themselves. The results will surprise you!
