I can’t begin to tell how annoying it is for my gold fish to be going through withdrawals. He had a prescription but kept it in his tank too long and it became illegible. He managed to piece it back together and was left with a mess of mashed paper. Then wrote “tramadol
” and bam, he’s thinking he can take that to the pharmacy. He can march his little butt up to the pharmacy counter and I can rest assure you he isn’t going to be handed any pills.
The real problem here isn’t the fact that my fish is taking pills, but my fish’s doctor. He had prescribed him the medicine shortly before going “human only”. I seriously doubt I can go with him to another doctor and have them give me a prescription for a gold fish.
He’s staring at me right now (he’s very manipulative), wanting me to come up with some sort of solution to this mess so he can attend his yoga class without doubling over in pain (he was wounded in a crab fight when he was 3 months old).
Is there any sort of natural, plant based medicine that does not get him high (he has to work too, he owns his own consulting firm in Maryland) and can take away his aching pain (without killing him)?
