Some females are truly hysterical, and this thread proved it.  Roll Eyes  Grin I wonder how many wars were started by women or were started because of women.  Shocked


I agree, rudeness is insulting, demeaning, embarrassing, and humiliating others.
To label a woman as "hysterical" is frequently done here at OC.net. I cannot provide examples without violating the rules, but you can search that term.

Excellent sleutheranism, Kelly!

clearly, this is all explainable by the fact that

a. there are females, who are truly hysterical trouble makers
and
b. there are women, who are angelic and it would be rude to imply they might cause trouble or be hysterical.



and since we have already been told to quit picking on a woman here......clearly that points to which is which

No.

But not because of the concerns of the article.

Please let us stop with the bickering, and get back on topic, which is, "Would you ask your vet for a prescription of Xanax for your dog?"

If you wish to discuss something other than that specific topic, please start a different thread.

Thank you.

Instead of everyone picking on Maria, why don't you simply ask TheTrisagion, why he posted the below remark?

There is no option to say I do not own a dog.

If I did own a dog, I would probably not give him Xanax. That stuff is expensive and I would keep it for myself.

TheTrisagion, I do hope that you, and everyone else, would use prescription drugs wisely, and ONLY if they were actually prescribed to YOU, and not to your dog.  Wink


I will tell you why I posted that remark.  Dog Xanax is so much better than people Xanax. Dog Xanax comes in awesome flavors like Bacon and Rawhide. I often go to my vet for medication, although I have to admit that he has started getting suspicious when I start asking for prescriptions of Percocet.  I have to come up with some excuse like my dog was working out and pulled a muscle in his back.

You are making me hungry.

One of my friends has a relative in a skilled nursing home, and they have put her nasty psychoactive medicine in her juice, yogurt, or desert. It absolutely wrecks the food and makes it taste very bitter. They tell her if she does not take her tablets, and they search the trash and floors, then they will either give it to her in her food or give her  an injection of Haldol. The Haldol is a wipeout, so she does not want that ever.

I hate Nursing Homes.

They just drug the elderly so they don't complain.

My uncle was in one for about 4 weeks.  We visited him daily and I found out he was also being drugged.  He had suffered a stroke and the point was to rehabilitate him there....but, no...they would drug him into a quiet stupor.  When I saw the chart I questioned the nurse about it and she told me he was being belligerent.  I asked him about it, and he mumbled that he wanted to go to the restroom, and he couldn't move and nobody would come and so he was yelling for help....

I told her that I had his power of attorney and I forbade them giving him any drugs that would diminish his speech, etc.  After all, he's there to help him speak clearer....not to just lay there and sleep.

They didn't give him anything for a few days, and then again he was drugged.

Just like the pretty old ladies, sitting in their wheelchairs, with glassy eyes, and perfectly coiffed hair, in the hallway.  Every day, in the same location....just sitting there and waiting to die.

I hate those places.

When my mom had to go to one earlier this year for a couple of weeks after serious pneumonia, I took vacation time, and didn't leave her side for more than 5 minutes.  You'd be amazed what you can sleep on when you have to.

I actually caught a number of medical errors.  She was supposed to be on a diuretic, nope...nothing.  She was to get her diabetic meds....nothing....  I had to actually call back to the hospital to get the doctors to talk to the nurses, etc.

I understand how sad those places are...and how busy and understaffed....but, if you send a loved one, whom you truly wish to see live....you need to watch them like a hawk.


As for Xanax and dogs....if the vet prescribed it, and I had the funds with which to buy them, I would.  Your pets become like family...and you don't wish to see them suffer.
