The dog is unpredictable and yet treated for "depression" with the same antipsychotic, mind altering, major illness side effects and body deforming medication that is given to humans. That also increase suicidal thoughts.

Animal abuse here folks and anyone that gives any of these drugs they deserve the bite!

Investigate these drugs and the people who dish them out!

With the amount of additives in our food as well as pet food of course we're feeling sick...and the answer from the drug companies is just take another drug to counter the effects of the ones we've already put in your systems.
Have you ever seen a drug work faster for depression than a simple hug? Granted there are different degrees and some do benefit from some medications..but simple acts of compassion towards other humans..or our pets can be a start to stop the depression.

I dont know if I should Laugh or cry. Is it animal abuse to give them chemicals? If it isn't then it should be.
Laurie you know it,
Yvonne, I thought the same things, what made that dog turn? Attacking is not depression.

Well! I'm speechless. Almost. In one sense to be "mauled" by a toy poodle sounds like an old SNL skit, on the other treat an animal with an anti-Depressant because of its erratic BEHAVIOR?!!! SOMEBODY call CESAR! SOMEBODY RESCUE this poor little dog from its people...who...instead of training and working with their pet, are DRUGGING it. I might just have to hop the pond and maul these people MYSELF!

Antipsychotics (anti depressants) are in the same class as Cocaine and Herione. The dog is literally having his mind altered. Do you wonder why he lashed out?

Honestly, I can't believe people are really that stupid. I wish the dog would've ripped his face off!!
