    Puppy Prozac...

    Advertisements
    Does anyone have a dog taking any kind of medication like this? My mom thinks I need to take Ari to the vet and see if they can give him something for his separation anxiety. It has gotten pretty bad and I know he must be miserable when I leave him alone but the though of putting him on medication longer term makes me nervous.

    did it change the way her dog behaved? I mean, aside from relaxing him (her?).

    My dog was on them. He would get really bad separation anxiety. I mean to the point where he tore up the front door carpet, cut his face trying to get out of his metal crate, chewed up baby gates that kept him in the kitchen. I took him off them because it made him tired all the time. He would sleep all day and night. The vet told me to give him a half of children's benadryl *sp?* tablet in some peanut butter. That works, relaxed him and no more chewed up carpet.

    Hmm...that sounds like a much cheaper option I'm not looking forward to having to buy a perscription for my pup for the rest of his life. He gets really bad like that as well though. Yesterday, I was unloading the car and he was sitting on my mom's lap shaking and freaking out because I was outside the car and he was inside it....and he could still see me! I can't imagine what he is like when I'm gone. Do you give him the benadryl everyday or just when you're leaving?

    My dogs are on Amitriptyline. For the 10mg, it's $9.49 at 1 800 pet meds. 100 ct bottle. I give my little dog (20 lbs) one pill a day. He's the one that shakes really bad, pants, and will pee every where. It calms him down. He has separation anxiety and issues with loud noises. He's not as bad as he used to be, but he still has a big problem with loud noises. He doesn't sleep more from being on them. He did at first, until his body got used to them.
