From the 12/18 Show – PETA and The Humane Society Inhumane – Pets Neglected

I remain amazed at the love many people claim to show their animals when in truth the animals are being psychologically neglected. It is time to better focus on the needs of our pets and learn from how we are treating our children.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is being diagnosed with increasing frequency. Recently, 4.5 million of our children have been diagnosed with ADHD http://www.adhdchildparenting.com/facts-about-adhd.php  All are candidates for the powerful amphetamine based drugs that the American Pediatric Society is recommending for children as young as four years old. http://healthland.time.com/2011/10/17/new-adhd-guidelines-include-kids-as-young-as-4/
The symptoms of ADHD are many. In part, WEBMD http://www.webmd.com/add-adhd/guide/adhd-symptoms  lists the following:
• difficulty paying attention to details
• easily distracted by irrelevant stimuli and frequently interrupting ongoing tasks to attend to trivial noises or events that are usually ignored by others
• inability to sustain attention on tasks or activities
• frequent shifts from one uncompleted activity to another
• fidgeting, squirming when seated
• getting up frequently to walk or run around
• running or climbing excessively when it’s inappropriate
• having difficulty playing quietly or engaging in quiet leisure activities
• being always on the go
• impatience
• frequently interrupting or intruding on others to the point of causing problems in social or work settings
In our quest to standardize and stabilize the children’s movements, we have been increasingly drugging our children with powerful amphetamines and cocaine mimicking drugs. Sales levels continue to increase for Adderall and Vyvanse.
The radio show has come to the conclusion that we are mistreating our animals. Puppies and dogs have the exact same symptoms our children have. I advocate for the drugging of our animals. The playfulness and innocence of a puppy should be curtailed. Amphetamines work at home and in the classroom for our children and using the logic of helping create a well adjusted child should be used on our pets.
Our pets have the same symptoms of our children at a young age. I say it is time to drug the puppies starting at an early age. If it’s good for our children, then logic dictates that Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Vyvanse and Focalin makes sense for our animals too.
To every person who loves their pet – Contact your local PETA group and Humane Society and advocate for the same treatment for your pet that we give our children.
