Váňová, Tereza ; Hofmanová, Barbora (advisor) ; Machová, Kristýna (referee)
Animal therapy is one branch of therapy that is utilizing a mutual interaction of two living species. The first medical reference for horseback riding therapy dates to the 2nd Century A.D. and dogs were used for the first time as a supplement to the therapy in the 8th Century in Belgium. The greatest expansion of animal therapy occurred during the second half of the 20th Century. Dogs are being used in canine therapy due to their friendliness and their higher body temperature. Kabatchnik and colleagues state that the average body temperature of a dog is 38.2C (2016) and are being used for positioning. To their clients, the dogs are a pleasant distraction and a motivation to make improvements during the rehabilitation process even though their effect is mainly psychological. Equine - assisted activities and therapies utilizes horses as co-therapists mainly due to the way horses move. Their three-dimensional movement is similar to the way the human body moves while walking. One component of equine - assisted activities and therapies is hippotherapy that belongs under physiotherapy. The most important component for a positive effect on the client is that the horse must move in a mechanically sound manner. These mechanics are then transferred to the client. Generally, horses and dogs are used for animal therapy, but it is possible to use other animals as well. Cats, ferrets, small rodents, or farm animals are often used for practical reasons such as transportation reasons, lowering costs, and client preferences. Each animal, regardless of the species, must be appropriately socialized and accustomed to human presence. The Czech Republic is home to many experts that can be compared to the leaders in this field, even the leaders in the USA. A research study in the field of animal therapy is quite grueling, especially because progress is hard to quantify yet the experts are pushing boundaries and gaining new experiences daily. Conferences organized by international institutions ensure the transfer of knowledge and experiences.
