Dog's Heart Condition Improves, Thanks to Viagra
Anti-impotence drug Viagra has given a 'new lease of life' to a dog suffering from a heart condition.

Talisker, a three-year-old border collie, developed heart problems after contracting a lung infection.

This meant that whenever he got a little too excited, he would lose consciousness as his heart was not pumping blood fast enough.

Owner Lesley Strong admits that though she had been 'shocked' when the vet told her to give her pooch Viagra, it certainly worked wonders for her beloved pet.

"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," the Telegraph quoted her, as telling the Sun.
