I recently moved to another state and we needed a 1 time refill from my cat's old vet. Chewy.com contacted our vet and they authorized the prescription. Within 4 days of order placement my cat got his medicine!
The product is OK but for a cat, the dose is part of a pill. Once cut, the cat can taste the bitterness and so begins Billy Boy v Human. We tried it in wet food, then in a pill pouch, then in part of a pill pouch so as not chew, next were Sheba treat stick pieces with a hole in the stick made by a paperclip big enough for the pill. That worked for 4 days straight. 1 for the Human. Previously, it was...you can fool me once but you won't fool me again. Here, you eat it. Moving on to the last resort before returning the cat to the vet's office was a click pen which gives a gel to apply to the inside of the ear. Success for the Human. Happy cat. Better living thru chemistry. So far no agressive attacks to Human body parts. Billy Boy is now more mellow and husband is happy without the wounds. GO GEL!
I have two special needs cats (one with severe colitis flareups and one with megacolon and chronic dermatitis) and this medication helps immensely with their temperament. Both cats were gotten as rescues around age 5 y/o and both had fairly traumatic backstories. Before being on medication for anxiety, both had behavioral issues. This is a prescription drug so you will need to ask your vet if it's something that would help your cat (not sure if other critters can take this). I'm writing this review mostly to help people that already have had this prescribed at the vet and are wondering if the quality is the same as what they get from the vet. It is the exact same medication that I had been getting from my vet so I'm guessing it's just the one manufacturer. I do have one thing to say regarding this particular pill. They come in 10mg tablets but my cats take 5mg so I need to cut them in half. The pills do cut cleanly but it would be helpful if the company that produces them would add a scoring mark for the 1/2 way point. I put the pill halves in empty gel capsules because they are tiny-tiny and I want to make sure they actually get the medication and not spit it out. I'm guessing the taste of these is bad because I can't trick the cats into eating them in treats or mixed with food.
