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.
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.
