Rated 4 out of 5 by dandyDarby Effective drug for anxiety
This is the best drug I've found for anxiety. I've tried others, and they just don't work as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ebilwabbit For a chronically anxious dog, it helps.
For a chronically anxious dog, it helps. If your pet is otherwise perfectly healthy and still anxious, this is a time tested option. In our case, it helps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lisa63 Helps
I have a hyper miniature poodle with misplaced aggression. This medication helps him somewhat but not fully. He is definitely less hyper. He gets over sedated if I give him 8 mg. so I give him 5 mg. 8 mg. is what the vet prescribed.

Rated 5 out of 5 Kitty Pills (Fluoxetine)
Buff, a 14+ pound Blue linxs point Siamese is getting up in age. He's 15 but looks 7 or 8 years old.
He started peeing indoors to mark his territory, from an invading pair of wild cats that would daily walk buy our many picture windows. Buff is the alpha male of three cats. He thought he was doing well by marking, But wow we might not find his pee for a couple days and it would sink and ruin things. I love Buff but was seriously so sick of fiding rancid smeely pee, Iwas telling him "stop or you're going to be put down".
My sister told us about Fluoxetine. We got 10 mg. caps. Buff's dose of 2.5 mg is given by mixing the powder in some wet food. The 10 mg. cap is taken apart and I divide the 10 mg. pile of powder into four piles with a single edge razor blade on a small peice of glass. Works well. But I look like a cocane user. Well after 2-3 weeks he has never peed outside the litter box. He is also more loving and mild. He sleeps his usual 20 hours like before. This drug has been a miracal for us.
My sister has a beautiful Bengal "James Bond", who would pee indoors because my sister can't help feeding a stray cat. Her vet said Prozac might work. James Bond has been good kitty for three years from Fluoxeline. But lately she had to up his dose.
Try this stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 Doggie prozac
I like being able to order my pet's RX here. It is about 1/3 the price I was paying at the vet's office. Our dog has/had separation anxiety and OCD, she would chew her ears and when going out to potty, would have to circle forever before she would go, the prozac really helps with it, I have tried to take her off several times and the symptoms always reappear so she is on it for good. We wrap a bit of cream cheese around the capsule and she looks forward to this every morning.

Rated 5 out of 5 Exceptional Customer Service
My Bernese Mountain Dog was diagnosed with the canine version of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) several years ago. The primary symptom was that he seemed to be "snapping"at imaginary flies overhead (at least that's how the vet described it and I couldn't come up with a better description.) Anyway, this is a chronic condition for which he has to take several of these fluoxetine capsules each day. When he doesn't get them he gets more aggressive, forcefully nudging you when he wants something and charging the cat.
Recently, for some unknown reason, a refill of the medication failed to arrive at my home despite assertions to the contrary by the US Postal Service. When I called PetCareRx to inform them, my customer service rep., Janice, couldn't have been nicer or more responsive. With little fanfare, she and her supervisor reshipped the order, upgrading the shipping option to UPS, at no additional cost to me. What more can you ask of a company? Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 Transdermal gel
I would be interested in a transdermal and it's price from you folks. My cats benefit greatly from this product but the pill form is much too difficult to administer to my tempermental kitties. The transdermal gel works great in their ear, however the price has doubled in as many months at my vet and I am looking for a cheaper venue. Thanks.

Rated 5 out of 5 Separation Anxiety - It Works
Fluoxetine (brand name Prozac) in conjunction with behaviour modification techniques works very well for my German Shepherd's separation anxiety. No negative side effects for my dog - after a few weeks on the medication, she became calmer and less anxious. While it hasn't functioned as a miracle cure (she is still not thrilled about being left alone) it has helped to significantly reduce her level of upset, to the point where she no longer feels compelled to destroy furniture and other household objects.
Other than helping to alleviate her separation issues, the drug doesn't affect her personality in the least - she's still the same lovable, wonderful dog.
Prior to finding Petcarerx, I was paying $90 per month for this drug. If your dog has separation issues, talk to your vet. And if he/she prescribes Fluoxetine, order it here - much cheaper than purchasing via a brick and mortar pharmacy!
