Dr. Peio: the amazing horse that comforts cancer patients and alleviates their pain

A 15-year-old stallion named Doctor Peyo, together with his owner, spent several years in competitions and reconstructions of jousting tournaments. For the past four years, they have been helping patients in a palliative center in France.

OUR editors will tell you about a unique experiment with “horse therapy.”

Stallion on his name is actually Peyo, but he fully deserves the honorary prefix “doctor”. The medical staff are proud to call him a member of the medical team.

Hassan Bashakur, the horse's trainer, said that her unique abilities manifested themselves even at the time of their active performances.

Peyo approached people, each time choosing someone who was physically sick or psychologically destabilized. Every time he just stood by and showed his participation, touched the person with his nose and allowed himself to be touched.

In his presence, people relaxed and began to smile. Hassan turned to specialist zoologists, who became interested in the unusual behavior of the horse.

For several years they tracked data on people approached by Peyo and came to the conclusion that the horse has never made a mistake in his choice.

Center Hassan and his pet came to help cancer patients. Scientists and doctors noted that its presence has a positive effect on the psychological state of patients. The staff also confirmed that those who visit an unusual doctor require significantly lower doses of strong drugs.

Each time, before visiting the center, Basakur thoroughly washes and treats the horse with disinfectants, he carries out the same procedure after the “work”. According to him, horse diseases are not transmitted to humans, but he considers it necessary to carefully observe hygiene. In addition, the smart horse has learned to let the trainer know when he needs to go outside – he moves his body from right to left.

Over the years of observation, scientists have not figured out how the stallion determines who to approach. Hassan explained that he and his horse walk along the corridor, if Peyo made a choice, he raises his front leg high, as if indicating the direction.

There are several patients in the center whom Peyo visits regularly, and with those with the most severe case, he can spend more than one hour. I must say that for the employees this wonderful couple is a real outlet. Doctors say that sometimes the work is especially difficult psychologically, and the wonderful Peyo always knows who needs to be comforted.

Over the years, an unusual Doctor visited, up to a thousand patients, others supported until his last breath. Hassan Bashakur admits that Peyo is his best friend, without whom he cannot imagine his life.
