Prozac, Zoloft and many other psycho-pharmaceuticals are being used on zoo animals to control behavior. The new book, "Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves", admits that it seems like anthropomorphism to talk about mental illness in animals.
