Saw this, and I could not work out if it was serious or not. http://newint.org/columns/seriously/.../01/seriously/
So supposedly, Reconcile is supposed to stop dogs suffering from seperation anxiety...especially puppies...from chewing, peeing on the carpet, whining or barking when they're human owners are away. The same arguments however, used by people who are against the usage of antidepressant medications such as Prozac with children.Yes, Eli Lilly and Co have just won US Food and Drug Administration approval to sell its over-prescribed, selective serotonin-reuptake-inhibiting, drinking-water-contaminating, best-selling drug ProzacTM to depressed dogs. Repackaged into a chewable, beef-flavoured pill to be called ReconcileTM, it is designed to treat ‘separation anxiety’. This is the medicalized term for leaving your pet alone for extended periods of time. Dogs, being very social pack animals, mysteriously can’t cope well with solitude. But now negligent dog owners the world over can rejoice. Just one happy pill with breakfast and Spot will be as happy as a lamb in Spring.
Is "seperation Anxiety" a myth perpetrated by the pharmaceutical industry to generate profits? And will there be a small percentage of dogs were experience side effects such as hallucinations and psychosis?
Whatever it is...still, where can I get some of this flavoured medication? Seriously. The casing on mine tastes...yuck.
