If the blood supply to the heart is cut off, a heart attack results. Cells in the heart muscle that do not receive enough oxygencarrying blood begin to die. The more time that passes without treatment to restore blood flow, the greater the damage to the heart. Having high blood pressure or high blood cholesterol, smoking, and having had a previous heart attack, stroke or diabetes can increase a person’s chances of developing heart disease and having a heart attack. According to the American Heart Association, about 700,000 Americans will have an initial heart attack and another 500,000 will have a recurrent heart attack in 2004.1 Almost half of people who have a heart attack will die from it. According to a CDC report, almost half of the cardiac deaths in 1999 occurred before emergency services and hospital treatment could be administered.2 It is important to recognize the signs of a heart attack and to act immediately by calling 911. A person’s chances of surviving a heart attack is increased if emergency treatment is administered as soon as possible.

As the ranks of vegetarians in the United States and around the world grow in number, many are applying the same ethical considerations and health benefits to their companion dogs who are omnivores just as we are. The ethical advantages are no different than for human vegetarians — a break with the slaughterhouse and with cruelty to animals raised for food. The health benefits would appear to be equally compelling, since the meat found in dog food generally consists of that deemed unfit for human consumption. Yet a cloud of controversy hangs over the issue of whether a dog can live healthfully on a vegetarian (meatless) or vegan (animal product-free) diet. Though discussed at length in the popular media, no one seems able to offer more than anecdotal evidence to support one view or the other. In an effort to settle the question and quell the nagging doubts of those who choose to provide their companion dogs with a vegetarian diet, a survey was initiated to gather and analyze data on the diet and health status of a large number of vegetarian dogs. Participants were solicited through PETA's newsletter, and data on 300 dogs over a period of one year were received. The survey included questions on the dogs' diets and health history, as well as general information, such as age, breed, and sex.
