Long Island Dog’s Life Saved By Viagra

HUNTINGTON, NY (CBSNewYork) — A dog on Long Island that was facing death is alive today thanks to the drug Viagra.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reports

Ingrid has been popping the little blue pills for five years. When the pit bull first arrived at the Little Shelter in Huntington, she was on the brink of death and a veterinarian recommended Viagra to help her heart keep beating. It worked.

“What a lot of people do not know is that Viagra was originally developed as a heart medication,” said spokesperson Jodi Record. “Now, it is used for something else, but it is what has kept her alive.”

And there’s more good news for the pooch. She was adopted and her new owners say they have no problem giving her the Viagra every day.

    STOP BEING RIDICULOUS. IN ADDITION TO THE CARDIAC TREATMENT FOR WHICH THE DRUG WAS INVENTED, THE OTHER USE WAS AS A PULMONARY SUPPORT – BREATHING – MEDICATION. THE DRUG, HOWEVER, HAD A PECULIAR SIDE EFFECT WHICH WE ALL KNOW ABOUT AND SOME LOVE. NOT ONLY WAS THERE A SIDE EFFECT BUT THERE WAS A HUGE PROFITABLE MARKET KNOWN AS ERECTILE DISFUNCTION. THIS PROBLEM COULD BE CAUSED BY DIABETES, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, PROSTATE CANCER AND REMOVAL OR A SIDE EFFECT OF PSYCOTROPIC OR ANTIHYPERTENSIVE DRUGS . IT TOOK FOOLS TO PERVERT IT’S USE AND GREATER FOOLS TO JOKE ABOUT IT. VIAGARA IS NOT A RECREATIONAL DRUG BUT, THEN, NEITHER ARE OXYCODONE, VALIUM, SOMA, CARISOPRODOL, METHAMPHETAMINE, CODEINE, COCAINE AND SO ON. SO STOP BEING SILLY ABOUT VIAGARA. BY-THE-WAY, I AM A RETIRED PHARMACIST AND REALLY DO KNOW WHEREOF I SPEAK.

      Genius DOC64:

      You misspelled “DYSFUNCTION”, “PSYCHOTROPIC”, “ITS”, and “VIAGRA” — for starters.

      I won’t even begin to correct your grammar and punctuation.

      You obviously had no clue about capitalization, ergo the Caps Lock key.

      “BY-THE-WAY” I am literate and really do know whereof I best you.

        Like the rest of the moocher class, I voted for Obama to have money taken from those who earn it, and given to those who didn’t. As they say, “Ain’t gotta paid my mortgage, nor for my viarga, no mo!” Now where’s my crack pipe and welfare check.

      If it were a male dog we can say now he can get it up and keep it up but since its a female what can we say? thank God this dog’s heart is still beating.
