Dogs on Drugs

Heard a odd story at dinner last night. Woman has a dog, a nice dog, a very doggy dog, until she leaves the pooch alone at home. Then he turns into the hound from hell. Chews up the furniture, chews up the house, chews down the blinds. Unlocks the sliding glass door, opens the door, runs outside through the mud. Runs back inside, tracks mud everywhere. Repeat. Someone gave her a diagnosis of "acute separation anxiety" and a prescription for Prozac. The drug seems to work. Now the dog behaves like a normal dog whether anyone is with him or not.

Other odd thing is that you can get drugs for animals from people pharmacy's. Usually they are more expensive, but in this particular case they were a lot cheaper, like less than half.
