What’s Bugging the Osbournes’ Pets?

If you 're one of the millions of viewers who tune into MTV's The Osbournes, you'd better make sure your dog isn't watching the hit series. He might get the wrong idea.

Every Tuesday night, viewers watch as the Osbournes' slew of pets run rampant through the house, with Ozzy yelling expletives at them impotently. Ozzy Osbourne may be the Prince of Darkness, but he's not King of his Castle.

Below is a list of some of the problems that appear to afflict the Osbourne pets, with links to articles to help diagnose and treat these problems in your own pets, as well as links to the particular breed.

Ozzy complains of living in a zoo, but most of the family's problems could have been avoided. It goes without saying that, in the real world, screaming at pets doesn't accomplish anything. In the world of the Osbournes, though, it apparently does help their Nielson ratings.
