Pet owners go through equally emotional experience as parents do with children, a new study has shown, Telegraph reports.

Scientists have conducted a study which has shown that persons playing with a pet have the same “rush” of hormones as parents do when they take care of their child.

Scientists often call the oxytocin hormone the “love drug” because it plays a key part in romantic bonding, friendship, as well as in creating a bond between the parents and a child.

Japanese scientists studied the levels of oxytocin change in 55 dog owners when they were playing with their pets.

Miho Nagasawa and Takefumi Kikusuo who carried out the research claim that raising the oxytocin hormone level in dog owners explains why playing with pets improves people`s mood and reduces anxiety and depression symptoms
