Big Pharma Is Going to the Dogs—Literally

Email Print

It’s bad enough that big pharma needs to find a disease-of-the-month to scare us all into perpetual pills for perpetual profit. (Too bad swine flu didn’t pan out for them.) Now big pharma is going after man’s best friend—with Prozac. You can read about this new veterinary medicine  “milestone” here. The article does close with a word of sanity from animal psychologist Roger Mugford:

“Most breakthroughs in [dog] behaviour are achieved by carrying a titbit and using it wisely, not by drugs.”

My advice to big pharma on this issue? Roll over and play dead. Permanently.
