Eli Lilly wins ok for dog separation anxiety drug

Drugmaker Eli Lilly and Co. said on Wednesday that it won U.S. regulatory approval for its drug to treat separation anxiety in dogs.

The drug, Reconcile, is one of a class of drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, which are also used to treat human depression.

Perhaps Eli Lilly could spend a little less money researching drugs for dogs and more for humans.
