Dog prescribed Viagra

A three-year-old border collie, named Talisker has been saved from certain death – by being prescribed Viagra. The dog developed a dangerously enlarged heart after a lung infection.

Talisker passed out when he got excited because his blood could not pump fast enough – and owner Lesley Strong, 58, was warned he would die.

So she was stunned when vet Nat Whitley said sex pill Viagra could help as it improves blood flow to the heart. Lesley now collects the prescription – labeled Talisker: Strong – from the chemist and puts it in his grub.

The former pub landlady, of Yardley Hastings, Northants, said: “I was shocked when the vet recommended Viagra and it raised a few eyebrows when I first collected the prescription – but it’s given Talisker a new lease of life.”
