“My philosophy in caring for heart patients in the last 25 plus years is that I’m all for having the biggest toolbox at your disposal. If you can improve your diet, great. Exercise, amazing. Stress reduction, bring it on. Herbsvitamins, yoga, Tai Chi, meditation, sauna, laughter, sleep … go for it! Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death and having all programs firing to promote health can make you heart attack proof

But what about Fido, Lassie, Benji? 
Can your pet actually influence not only quality but also the quantity of your life? “
