I started a new web site. It’s www.floxiepets.com. It’s a site with which I hope to bring awareness about how fluoroquinolones can hurt and kill our beloved pets. Cats, dogs, rabbits, horses, guinea pigs, and other loved animals are being poisoned by fluoroquinolones. It’s wrong and it needs to stop.
I am looking for stories about pets that have been floxed. If you have a story that you would like to share about an animal that has been hurt by Baytril or any other fluoroquinolone, please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I wonder if people will pay more attention, and be more outraged, about pets getting hurt than they are about people getting hurt. People have become so accustomed and numb to human pain and suffering that it fails to evoke outrage. We have gotten so used to the mantra of, “all drugs have side-effects” that we forget that those “side-effects” are happening TO PEOPLE; that people are getting hurt and killed by drugs, and that it is wrong for that to happen. People still become outraged over animals being hurt though.
Perhaps greater outrage over pain inflicted on animals than pain inflicted on our fellow humans is not absurd. Our fellow humans have decision-making capabilities, responsibility and free will. Our pets do not. They trust us entirely to care for them. So, when they are hurt by human negligence, ignorance or cruelty, we become outraged. Pets are innocent. To hurt them is wrong.
Don’t get me wrong, hurting humans with fluoroquinolones is very, very, very wrong as well. It needs to stop. I appreciate everyone who is screaming about this absurd, and horribly wrong, situation of people being crippled by Cipro, Avelox, Floxin and Levaquin. People can communicate their pain. We should communicate it. We should scream about it until it stops.
Animals can’t communicate their pain to us. It is up to us to interpret their actions and tell their stories. If you have a story about a loved pet being hurt by Baytril, or any of the other fluoroquinolones, please share his or her story. Hopefully the stories of pets being hurt by fluoroquinolones will save others from the same fate.
Maybe it will even evoke some outrage. Perhaps even some change.
