Prozac for pets? Give me a break

Now Fido can have the same violent and psychotic breaks from SSRIs as humans.

The FDA has approved a reformulated version of the much-prescribed SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) Prozac, but this one is just for dogs. Reconcile was created to treat canine separation anxiety. It is a once-daily, chewable, dog-treat-flavored drug that is supposed to be used “in conjunction with a behavior modification plan.”

Now this is getting insane.

Scamming people isn't enough for big pharma. They target our pets too. Instead of prozac for pets why not spend more time with your dog.. I'm sure a little stimulation is all they may need.
