Do other people find that pets help their IBS?Last week my gerbil had babies and just watching them makes me feel better. Also I have a cat and if she sits on me and purrs it seems to relax cramps.

Pets are wonderful.These are brain gut interactions.One distraction and calming the brain gut axis can have positive outcomes on the gut. Emotions can have positive or negative effects on IBS.
