Pets Popping Prescription Meds: Did Xanax Fuel Travis the Chimp’s Attack?




Someone call E! Hollywood True Story. Travis the Chimp’s fall from cuddly commercial star to crazed attacker may have had something to do with his stage mom, Sandra Herold. Apparently, she put Xanax in his tea to calm him down. She insists the pill had hardly had time to dissolve before Travis savagely attacked 55-year-old Charla Nash, who is now in a Cleveland clinic waiting to find out if a face transplant is an option.

Hello, horse tranquilizers don’t do good things for people, so obviously human meds aren’t meant for cats and dogs. Still, that doesn’t stop pharmaphiles from administering people pills like Xanax, Prozac, Benadryl and Kaopectate (yes, for when kitty gets the runs) to their pets.

WTF? Vets don’t love it. We think it’s creepy. What do you think?
