Disturbing Trend Pet Owners Hurting Animals Just to Score Pet Prescriptions

Addicts are now using pets as tools to score prescription drugs. Some of them are even hurting their pets. CBS2’s Jessica Layton reported, a New Jersey lawmaker wants to put an end to the abuse of pet prescriptions.

New Jersey State Assemblyman Kevin Rooney (R-Wayne) said that he heard about specific cases around the country.

“A golden retriever dog sliced by its owner, taken to multiple vets to get an opiate, dogs were taught to cough in order to go in and be prescribed an opiate. It’s trending throughout the entire United States,” he said.

Right now, in New Jersey, anytime a veterinarian prescribes a medication for someone’s pet, it’s done in the animal’s name. The lawmaker is pushing for a statewide database to keep track of pet prescriptions using the owner’s name.

He said it would crack down on people who hop from vet to vet to get pills.

“It sounds like it’s escalating, and probably not long before I see a case,” Dr. Benjamin Davidson said.

Dr. Davidson, of Blue Pearl Pet Hospital in Paramus said the only downside he can see is that have to report to a centralized system could take time away from pet care.

“But I think we have to look at, we have to look at the big picture which is preventing people from hurting animals,” he said.

In New York, vets are required to make an online report within 24 hours of dispensing tramadol, a pain reliever that can be taken by both people and pets.

Assemblyman Rooney hopes to see his bill go to the full New Jersey legislature in the next few weeks.

Survey Shows Men Increase Attractiveness by Owning A Pet

Chick Magnet pets, Chick Magnet dogs, dogs


Owning a pet is takes a lot of sacrifices and you should treat your pet as a family. However, if you are looking for love you can boost your chances in finding someone when you adopt a furry friend, according to a new survey.

The survey were done by Petsies, a company that makes stuffed animals. They surveyed 1,000 men and women and ask the participants how attracted they were to the opposite sex when possessing differently sized cats and dogs. Researchers showed study participants 12 pictures of the same people. Half of the group saw the person with a pet, while the other half saw him or her without a pet. Researchers used two pictures for each type of pet, and they were classified as “cat, kitten, puppies, small-sized dogs, medium-sized dogs and large-sized dogs.”

Cat owners may be unlucky in love

The study shows women rated men with puppies as almost 24% sexier, 14% more trustworthy and 13% more attractive than the same man not carrying a dog. Also dogs that are medium sized (not too big or too small) gave women the biggest sexiness boost, as men rated them about 7% sexier and more attractive than if they weren’t carrying a dog at all. But in terms of trustworthiness, women with small dogs were rated by men with about 9% more so than women without a dog.

As for women who owns kittens or cats, they were perceived as the least attractive, and women with cats were rated lowest on sexiness and trustworthiness. Also for men, owning a large dog lessen their sexiness and attractiveness. And for the men, being a medium-sized dog owner led to the lowest trustworthy rating.

Hudson has always been a happy, fun-loving dog, but the 12-year-old Portuguese water dog slowed down considerably after her arthritis worsened and a toe was amputated.


Michael Fasman of San Francisco use alternative medicine to treat his dog's illness, he uses cannabis or marijuana. His 12-year-old dog named Hudson limps from pain caused by arthritis and an amputated toe. He does not want to give his dog painkillers because "they just knock her out."

Every morning Fasman squeezed several drops of a cannabis extract onto a plate of yogurt, which the Portuguese water dog eat up in seconds. It's become part of Hudson's daily routine.

"We think it's really lifted her spirits and made her a happier dog," Fasman said. "It's not that she's changed. She's just back to her good old self."

As more states legalize marijuana for humans, more pet owners are giving their furry companions cannabis-based extracts, ointments and edibles marketed to treat everything from arthritis and anxiety to seizures and cancer.

These pet products that contains cannabis are not yet regulated, and they contain cannabidiol or CBD, a chemical compound found in cannabis that doesn't get pets or humans high. They contain little or no tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, the cannabis compound known for its psychoactive effects.

However, experts say that there are not enough scientific data to show cannabis is safe and effective for treating animals. But despite of lack of scientific data or veterinary guidance, many pet owners are convinced cannabis has improved their pet's health and well-being, based on their own observations.

Heartbreaking note Attached To A Dog given up for Adoption

Rhino dog, Rhino lightning story



A dog which was given up for adoption has a note from the owner in a notepad hanging from his collar and it was written by a child. The family's daughter wrote a 15-page note in a tiny spiral notebook which has details and instructions that would be helpful for Rhino's new owner.

It started with “Hi, if you’re reading this you must own Rhino now. He was my puppy. I really hope he is in a good environment. I really miss him. I wish he knew that he was a pretty puppy," she wrote.

The girl's family gave up the dog because it has several small children. The family admits the decision was heart-wrenching. They said they only had the 3-year-old dog for five months, having picked him up from the shelter themselves. They loved him very much however, the dog was too big and too energetic for their young children.

The girl also included his favorite toy which is a green Nerf ball but never give him a tennis ball since he rips them apart. The girl also ask the new owner to not rename him. “His full name is Rhino Lightning (then your last name). Please don’t rename him.”

Rhino's new owner is Melanie Hill of Clearfield, she went to the Humane Society looking for a dog. When she saw Rhino it was love at first sight. She took Rhino home to Davis County -- along with the note pad and the detailed instructions. Hill said she doesn't know anything about Rhino's previous owner, but she wants the girl to know Rhino will be loved by her family and his name will stay the same.
