Sometimes nervous and easily stressed dogs need anxiety medication to feel more comfortable. Chewy carries several types of effective dog anxiety medication, including antidepressants, sedatives and antihistamines.
Your vet can prescribe the right anxiety treatment for your dog based on his symptoms and health profile. Dogs with separation issues may benefit from a calming separation anxiety medication before being left alone, and those with noise aversions will often feel better if they’re given anxiety medicine before storms, fireworks or other frightening noises.
You can get anxiety pills or try one of the chewable, soft chew or liquid formulas. Transdermal or oromucosal gel formulas help you provide anxiety relief without the hassle of oral administration. Most anti-anxiety formulas are not designed for very young dogs, but your vet can advise you on whether a lower dose can work for puppies.
