This research project was carried out in the field of human health in order to determine how the dog can influence the clinical recovery of a human being who is undergoing a post-operative clinical recovery. Dogs and humans have gone through an evolutionary process that forged the relationship they have today. Thanks to this relationship, dogs can be of great help to humans when they experience a difficult situation, such as mental or physical problems, that prevents them from loving the day-to-day life. Animal Assisted Therapy, or better known as AAT has been practiced for many years and is a process in which humans benefit from animals, in this case dogs, in terms of physical and mental well-being. The methodology used was a literary review of descriptive medical research studies about how the presence of a domestic dog may influence in the post-operative recovery of a human being. From this research, it can be deducted that Animal Assisted Therapy has a clinical impact on the natural history of the disease, reducing the evolutionary time of recovery. It is found that the subjective experience of the disease improves thanks to the aid dogs provide.
