Are you saying that because you're interested in the microbiome of the gut or because you currently have gut issues?

I was curious how animals such as rats, dogs, monkeys etc might be given heart attacks, and found the following, which may be of interest to others who are similarly curious.

"Myocardial infarctions (MIs) in rats were originally induced by the sequential administration of subcutaneous isoproterenol causing diffuse myocardial necrosis. Subsequent investigators used an electrocautery technique applied to the epicardial surface to induce small, focal infarctions. Soon thereafter, Pfeffer et al developed the rat coronary ligation model that became perhaps the most widely used heart failure and MI model in the decades to follow."

Apparently transgenic animals can also be used, bred to carry mutated genes so that they develop hypertension, hypertrophy and subsequent heart failure.

People in the future will look at us as barbarians for what we do to animals, and maybe we are, but it’s true to that without these methods, we may never gain this knowledge.

"You do not settle whether an argument is justified by merely showing that it is of some use. The distinction is not between useful and useless experiments but between barbarous and civilized behaviour. Vivisection is a social evil because if it advances human knowledge, it does so at the expense of human character."
