I have read a good story:
An old lama, who sit on the carpet from bear skin, he read the teaching, that one should avoid using carpet, that made from killing the living beings. Soon he pulled out the carpet, and continued reading the Teaching, and then he read that an old or sick person, allowed to use such carpet. and then soon he took the carpet again.
May be this can show us, that vegetarianism or not is depending also on the physical condition of the person, and proofs the flexibility of Buddhism, and one should as soon as possible practice the Dharma.
Maybe this can enlarge our knowledge.
