Pets coverd in Family Medical Plan?

"PETS at risk of self-harm are increasingly being prescribed anti-depressants because they cannot discuss problems in their lives with others, a leading veterinarian says.

Zoo and wildlife medicine specialist with the UK’s Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons, Romain Pizzi, told the
Telegraph that more pets were being prescribed Prozac.

Tropical birds such as parrots seemed to have been the most affected by depression, Mr Pizzi told the newspaper."

So Feefee feels like killing herself and you want to help. But is your Vet in your health network and will your pet's Prozac be covered or will you have to pay full price?

OH COME ON!! This is just the stupidest thing I have ever read in my life! Kids starving in Guam, US jobs outsourced, Honey Bees vanishing by the millions and you want PROZAC for your parrot WHO, by the way, probably wants to kill itself because you have it trapped in a cage so you can entertain guests with "pretty bird" instead of letting it fly in the wild where it friggin belongs!? Am I the only one who sees this as a load of CRAP?! I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!
