Eli Lilly, the maker of Prozac, is first out of the gate with Reconcile, a chewable anti-depressant tablet flavored with beef, and meds for cats and other critters are not far behind.The experts (but who the heck needs them to figure this out?) say biggest reason for pet depression is their being left alone for long periods while their owners work or play.
Well, as someone who has cared for dogs, cats, hamsters, tropical fish, horses, goats, sheep, geese, ducks, chickens and peacocks over the years, I'm an expert, too.
My advice: Don't get a pet if you're going to leave it alone. And if you've got one that you leave alone, find it a suitable home, okay?
