Prozac for the Pooch April 28, 2007

Posted by truthspew in dogs, drugs.

Some years ago in a communications class I was selected to debate the use of drugs on dogs, particularly psychoactive drugs. I was to be in the pro position.

I was so convincing that the professor thought that was my actual belief. In reality I object to using psychoactive drugs on animals. We barely understand their function in human beings.

So now there’s news that Prozac has been approved for canids a class under which the common dog falls.

On the flip side, we’ve been drugging people into submission for decades. This includes kids being doped up on Ritalin, Prozac and any number of other drugs to control their behavior. So why not use them on fido? Because it’s just a way to stimulate sales in order to shore up the profits of pharmaceutical companies.

So if you feel you must, drug little fi-fi into oblivion.

i thought the only drug a dog needed was dog treats and possibly the occasional hotdog from the fridge?

I have a friend who has a Great Dane that is on prozac and valium. The dose is the same as for humans because he is so big. Without the drugs the dog is a basket case and chews up doorknobs in the matter of seconds.
