Tag Archives: dogs with anxiety

guess what copper ate this time?

Well he didn’t exactly eat something…yet. A while back, I wrote a post about doggy Prozac and other such things, and in the post I mentioned that my beloved nutso dog Copper would probably be a candidate for some sort of anxiety pill. My mom took him to the vet the other day, and turns out, HE IS. The vet wants to put him on doggy Prozac, but naturally my anti-pill father won’t allow it. My conversation with my mom went a little like this:

Me: Prozac?! No! Didn’t you read my scathing post about doggy drugs?

Mom: Uh, no…

Me: Well, I don’t think Copper should go on drugs. It might make him…boring!

Mom: You’re on Prozac; are you boring?

Me: Point taken.

Mom: Think of it, he could be a new man!

Ugh. I really hope my dog doesn’t have to go on anti-anxiety medicine, but I’ll keep you posted.
