Medications for a Dog's Mental Well Being?

Many veterinarians, just as human doctors, feel that the answer to many behavioral woes comes in a pill bottle. There are tremendous flaws in this way of thinking and let me cite, thorough my personal experiences, why I state this.

Out of the over 20,000 dogs I have trained, and I can't count how many dogs I I have seen and evaluated I saw one candidate for mood leveling drugs. One out of all those dogs. The particular dog I am referring to had a problem with seizures. All the the rest of the dogs that supposedly needed these mood levelers (which I include uppers, downers, and antidepressants) were incorrectly being drugged. The dogs were made to suffer (even at the lightest dosages because of addictions, drinking to much water, and various other actions). What the dogs needed in every case was a practical approach through an avenue of training. Whether it was obedience, protection, or tracking, etc. the training methods corrected the problems not the pill box.

I would never be so presumptuous to dabble in the medical/prescriptions field because I don't know enough. Veterinarians should take the same attitude when it comes to correcting problems that require a regimented training schedule.
