Puppies on Prozac: Veterinarians Say They’ve Seen More Pets Experiencing Mental Distress

From a New York Times story by Melinda Wenner Moyer headlined “The Cat’s Taking Prozac, and the Dog’s on CBD”:

When my dog Ozzy feels stressed, he emits loud, rambly groans that are ridiculously cute but also make me wonder if he’s having a stroke. After noticing that his anxiety swells quite frequently, our trainer recommended that we give him CBD treats to soothe his nerves. Shortly thereafter, our veterinarian prescribed him the antidepressant trazodone for when he’s especially stressed, including before vet appointments. Ozzy appears to be in good company: In the process of reporting this piece, I learned that two of my editors have cats on Prozac.
