Not a Fan of Prescription Drugs

No, I am not a fan of prescription drugs. I know that some have a valuable purpose and are very needful, but I also believe that prescription drugs are way overused and that the first aim of defense is to find the root of the problem and fix that rather than medicate.

The other day I took my dog to the vet to have a check up and get his rabies shot. The doctor said there was a slight irregularity in his heart beat and that there is a medication to fix that. So I did what I would do for myself. I realized that he is slightly overweight and under exercised. So instead of medicating him, I will take him for more walks and help him lose some weight and get in better physical shape. And I will try and convince Kev to stop feeding him from the table. That will be the harder task.
