|How do we help someone then ourselves? There's one person specifically I'm thinking of not from here but another dog group and we exchange friendly email. When she says about how it's such a struggle for her and is demanding the vet to give more medications when the vet doesn't want to, she turned to buying them online pharmacy. I don't know how without a prescription unless she lied? Anyway but whenever she talks about this I try to say something positive instead of "poor you and dog" I say something like "think positive" and she won't respond to that. Unless I say "poor you" she doesn't reply about it anymore to me. I was afraid that maybe because of how I'm not so supportive of certain medications sometimes, that it was just me but I really think she has this. She's been giving her dog valium she bought over the internet for her epileptic dog, but she gives it when he's not having seizures, she'll give it if she thinks he looks "off" when he wakes up for example. And I know valium isn't for prevention it's only to give to stop a seizure that's happening. Plus it's the valium she bought online without the vet's support. Then she says how drugged up her dog is to the point he can't walk straight, and how she can't handle it.
It's made me think of myself too, I have and would continue to choose medications myself for my dogs but while working with a vet or professional. I'd also, in the situation Sanka described, never give up on a raw diet or blame the balanced and appropriate raw diet for a problem. What a thin line this is...except I see the difference when someone just does this and feeds on the attention.
