Rather than feeding your dog less and saving money just purchase an expensive potentially dangerous drug?

"The most common side effect of the drug is vomiting – others include diarrhoea and lethargy."

So the dog loses weight, can't keep down food and is too tired to move....I think any owner tha buys this gets their dog taken away from them for animal cruelty. This is another sign of we have lost our minds.

Not only are we looking for the quick fix for our own obesity problems we're after it for our dogs too? Completely pathetic. Almost as bad as puppy prozac. Although I'm sure the pet pharmaceutical market is only just beginning to come into its own. People will do anything for their pets...except take them for a walk I guess.
