Our dog is currently taking elavil(sp) due to his extreme behavior during thunderstorms. The meds seem to be working but he has begun shedding terribly.
He is a three year old bassett hound. We have three other bassetts and none are shedding to this extreme. Can you suggest an alternative medicine o treatment? Without the meds, he drives himself in to a frenzy, hyperventilating, salivating, etc.
Shedding is not a side effect of this medication. Nervous dogs tend to shed more. If you notice areas of alopecia ( hair loss) then I recommend a vet visit. You can try derm-caps for the shedding. vetcare
