            Pet ownership, social support, and one-year survival after acute myocardial infarcation in the Cardiac Arrhythmia Suppression Trial (CAST).

American Journal of Cardiology. 1995; 76: 1213-1217.

Friedmann, Erika; Thomas, Sue A.; Son, Heesook; HAT investigators.

            Pets, depression and long-term survival in community living patients following myocardial infarction. Anthrozoös. 2011 Sep; 24(3): 273-285.

            This study uses a shortened version: The question “Do you currently have any pets?” and a list of the types and names of pets owned were used to obtain pet ownership status (see p.276). Also uses the Beck Depression Inventory-2 (BDI-II), Spielberger’s State Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), the Social Support Questionnaire-6 (SSQ-6) and the ALFI-MMSE 25-item version of the mini mental status examination.
