Disturbing Diversion

Pet’s on psychoactive drugs. Apparently there is also a market for pet liposuction! Who’s sick here, the pets or the owners? I can see a future where I don’t bring my pet to the vet.

  3. Wait until the stories of pets mauling children and owners as they come off anti depressants start circulating. Then there will be a canine bipolar epidemic in puppies. Good grief when will people get a grip.
