The definition of a savage is a violent towards of nature. The sick truth is that some opioid addicts go to extremes to get prescriptions to feed their addiction. These people should be ashamed of themselves for what they do to their pets.
There have been reports of pet owners who abuse their pets to the extreme whereby a vet prescribes opioid medications. Pardon me for my ignorant question but do opioids nullify a conscience?
So the question is, legally, what are the repercussions for these people who choose to abuse their pets rather than seek treatment for their addiction?
As some veterinarians are starting to realize, this has been a problem for quite some time. Animals that have come in repeatedly with injuries requiring opioid pain meds are being reevaluated.
To further the awareness among vets, there is now an online course offered to spot the signs. Honestly? I wish Amazon sold a good conscience in pill form. Poor innocent animals. Savages.
