I Demand My Rights!… To Keep A Guinea Pig

Can keeping a pet be classified as a human right? Don’t be shocked, it’s easier then you think. Most municipal laws already make exceptions for seeing-eye dogs and other service dogs. All you have to do is to (get a lawyer who can) prove to the State that your pet is essential to your health. I hear there are highly paid lawyers working on this right now…

How do I feel about the issue? On one level I agree. There are many older clients coming to my clinic for whom the dog really is an essential health item. The problem is, if it’s OK for a guinea pig, why not for a pit bull or worse – a mountain lion.
