    First of all let me state my vet prescribed half a pill a day, of the 5 mg pill, for my neutered male senior eight year old cat. He's been on the medication almost six months now.  He began showing anxiety and spraying all over the house whenever he saw a cat in the back yard. I have used Feliway plug ins, and other calming aids but nothing was working.  I clean the litter box two to four times a day.  I even use fox urine in the yard to deter cats, raccoons and other animals from coming into my yard. He wasn't sleeping, and kept meowing and yowling. The vet said to allow thirty days for the drug to get into his system, but it worked from the very first dose.  No spraying, no meowing, no pacing First of all let me state my vet prescribed half a pill a day, of the 5 mg pill, for my neutered male senior eight year old cat.

The vet said to allow thirty days for the drug to get into his system, but it worked from the very first dose.  No spraying, no meowing, no pacing or running from window to window, not going into the litter box every fifteen minutes to urinate a small bit or dig around. No excessive grooming.  I send a written report to my vet every month with updates. He sleeps the normal fourteen or so hours a day. Birds in the yard don't agitate him as much.  The only negative side effect I've encountered is he seems to have some elimination issues. Every other month I've found a couple pieces of feces in the house. Once near the litter box, in the living room, and in the kitchen where he sits to eat. I think he might be dribbling a little urine as he licks himself a bit more. He's not meowing or stressed and otherwise goes into the litter box normally. It's a lot easier to clean up a couple pieces of feces than cat urine spray. … more

    I recently adopted a dog, and I had some confusion about how I would be able to get his medications. The vet services were amazing and made the whole process easy!

    Not sure it's actually doing anything..... but then again.....

    We have a little dachshund (just over a year) that we rescued earlier this year and he has a bit of separation anxiety. He's a great dog but tends to go off the deep end when I leave. Thanks to the virus, that hasn't been often so when I do go, he really becomes unglued. I tried all the normal routes (we only rescue dachshunds so this is not my first nervous guy) but they failed. My vet recommended this and we have had him on it for about 2 weeks. I can say that it does nothing for him when I separate the gang (we currently have 5) to take a group for the morning walk and he has to wait to be in the second crew BUT I have found that if I have to leave later in the morning (to grocery shop We have a little dachshund (just over a year) that we rescued earlier this year and he has a bit of separation anxiety.

I just had the brilliant idea to give the pill at night before bedtime to see if that will help in the morning (maybe it's not fully in his system by the time we do the a.m. walks) so we'll see if doing a nighttime dose will help. TBD. … more

    My dog has been taking this medicine for several years and I had been getting it thru my vet’s mail order service. I noticed that chewy now had it available and at $20 less per 30 pills!

    Fast acting

    It’s only been 2 days and my American Bulldog has shown immediate improvement. He went from shaking like a leaf and peeing everywhere when we left to calmly getting though the day with no accidents. He takes a pill every 12 hours, so relieved.

    Most effective med yet

    By on

    I am appalled at reviews that expect this medication to work in 6 days? It takes a full 4-6 weeks for this medication to take effect in the dogs system. And it might not be the right dose yet. You need an rx so you should be working with a vet who should advise you of this, and you are your pets advocate so do your own research. Also, does anyone think it might be helpful to leave your dogs weight and dose when reviewing? I find that helpful as I’m trying to compare what worked for others in a similar situation. We are adopted a jack Russell beagle mix from a shelter that had only been at the shelter for two weeks and was found as a stray so we know no history on her.

We are adopted a jack Russell beagle mix from a shelter that had only been at the shelter for two weeks and was found as a stray so we know no history on her. We do not know if her anxieties developed from us not doing the proper things when we brought home a rescue dog, leaving her alone too soon, leaving her during rain, creating her. She clawed and chewed our door frame a few days later, and she obviously has isolation anxiety. Any human can be present but she cannot be alone. We worked with a behaviorist, an in home trainer, and we behavior modification, puzzle toys, automated treat dispensers and many other things to help our pup. She needs medication to be able to learn. So far we have started at a low dose of clomicalm and been increasing by 5mg doses every 4weeks. It has been slow, months, but we think 40mg might be the dose for our 28lb beagle mix. She is starting to be more sleepy and calm, not as reactive to leaving cues, and able to be left for 30min with a treat toy as a distraction. We have tried prozac prior to this but when her success in training was broken by a family member picking her up hours after we left her, she was pushed to panic and we could not get her back to where she was so we think the prozac was not effective. We have hope for this medication. My main point is this takes time to work, and when you leave a review, think about why you are leaving it and elaborate so it’s actually useful. Not it worked, it didn’t work. That doesn’t tell anyone the situation, dose, weight of animal, condition using it for. Those actually trying to help our pets and gain normalcy in our life are seeking information to draw conclusions, to ask our vet questions etc. … more

    Completely ineffective

    By on

    My vet prescribed this for my dog who has separation and confinement anxiety. He must be crated because he has clawed through drywall when we've left the house, but he also chews and claws attempting to escape the crate. My vet was resistant to prescribe Xanax or Prozac and called those a last resort and advised us to try Clomicalm. I ordered a 90-day supply, and it is completely ineffective for my pup. After trying it for a month, it was clear it made no difference for his anxiety.
