No they don't, even my 14 year old wire-haired fox terrier is medication free, he's a little slower with age but he's not on any meditations.

My golden ret is drug free. She's just over 2 years old.

Arabella has a heart arrhythmia and takes 2 medications for that. Sotalol 2 times a day, and mexilitine 3 times a day, with her meals. She also has low thyroid levels and takes soloxine twice a day for that. And she cannot take these medications together. So I  give her pills 7 times a day. If it weren't for the alarm on my phone, I don't know how I would keep it straight. I also give her CBD oil for her arthritis and Cosequin for her joints. She is nearly 12 and half, which is old for a Boxer.

She can get 100 ml twice a day at 60 lbs. ( 50-75 lb range. I give Skully half that for his anxiety as needed and he is 75 lbs.

One of our rescues has generalized anxiety---she was found on the side of the road with her litter mates when she was 3 days old and had no chance to be properly socialized.  She takes fluoxetine.

The other rescue is on Apoquel for allergic itching and tramadol for long term pain alleviation.

Both about 7 or 8 years old.

We got our dog three years ago from the shelter, and she's about six or seven years old.  She does take once-a-month NexGard and Heartgard to prevent fleas and worms.  She's very healthy.  :)

I remember when I was a child we had a cat. She would
regularly go, fight with others and come back home with her neck really
injured. I remember my father cleaning the wound with hydrogen peroxide so that
it does not get infected and applying some sort of medicine on it to help it
heal before bandaging it. That is not taking medication but that is the only
time one of my pets has used any form of medical products.

My cousin had a Chocolate color poodle and his name was Sir Chocolate but we called him Choco and he was having seizures and had to be put on Phenobarbital . Here before he passed away a test done on him showed his liver was real enlarge . It was all due to him being a Type 1 Diabetic and no vet  we took him to could find that he was a Type 1 Diabetic .Why it didn't show up in blood test is beyond my knowledge ?
