Do It for the Doggie

While some people may argue about the health effects of second-hand smoke, a lot of them say they would be willing to stop smoking to preserve the health of the family pet.

An online survey conducted by the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit found that almost one in three smokers said the health of a pet would motivate them to try to kick the habit. Mewanwhile, 16 percent of non-smoking pet owners said their pet's health would motivate them to ask a smoking family member to quit, and 24 percent said they would at least ask the smoker to take smoke outside the building they are in.

Sounds like the makings of a new public health ad campaign.
