Beware the dog hormones.

By johnboy - 1 September 2011 11

ACT Policing is issuing a warning to the public that medication stolen from a Lyneham veterinary hospital is potentially fatal to humans.

Around 2.30am this morning (Thursday, 1 September) police attended the Lyneham Veterinary Hospital in response to a burglary at the premises.

CCTV footage shows two offenders entering the main foyer and going to the storeroom which contained the medication.

An audit of the drug room by staff has revealed the offenders took some Trilostane which is used to treat dogs for hormonal conditions. If the drug is consumed by a person it may cause vomiting and nausea, while a large dose has the potential to be fatal.

Police would urge anyone who may have witnessed suspicious activity around 2.30am this morning (Thursday, 1 September) to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information to Crime Stoppers can be provided anonymously.

I’m not sure I agree with this warning. It would only be the thieves or someone monumentally stupid injecting/ingesting the drugs – either way society wins.

The results could only be beneficial to the community.

Desexed female dogs sometimes have bladder leakage as they age. Hormone therapy is prescribed, at least that’s what my mum says. The poodle does seem drier.

Has anybody thought that the theft might have been done by steroid dealers seeking to pass them off as bodybuilding agents? Many vets are targeted by bodybuilders seeking the gear because they think vets are a softer touch than GPs.

You really have to wonder at what passes for brains in some of these people.
