    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

    Great product!

    By on

    This medication has changed my dog’s life! She is now living a much more fulfilling life as a calmer version of her former self! I also thought it was great how Chewy was willing to contact my vet for the prescription. Very convenient and affordable!

    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.

    Not Effective

    By on

    My vet prescribed this to help with separation anxiety. He has been taking the medicine for a month and I haven't noticed really any difference. Not worth the extra money.

    Very helpful for my small dog.

    By on

    Our dog started acting anxious and regressing in her house training after the baby arrived, so our vet had us try Clomicalm. It’s been about a month on it and it has helped so much! Well worth the cost in my opinion.

    Clomicalm and Chewy

    By on

    My German has severe separation and general anxiety, from being left alone for 20-22 hours a day locked up as a pup, it has gotten better since she has been with me but the clomicalm helps her to be able to relax and have more doggy fun with her fur sister and hooman brother and sister! Before clomicalm she broke out of her crate, while we were at work and injured her face, since clomicalm she finds her crate to be her peaceful place she can just freely enter and leave whenever she just needs a minute to chill out.

    Happy Dog, Happy Life

    By on

    Our poor dog was crying loudly at all hours of the day when we left for work, which led to over a year of doggy daycare while trying everything to lessen her separation anxiety. After we had exhausted all of our options, our vet prescribed us this. It took a few weeks after starting her on Clomicalm before we even tried to leave our dog for a little while, but when we did we saw that the meds were working! She looks at the door when she hears it open, but goes right back to her toy and even falls asleep after a while. She's the same dog without being in distress when we leave. Medication is not magic, but this certainly took the edge off where it was needed.

    This medication is a god send !

    By on

    This saved our pup and us. She was an anxious mess that could never be left alone or put in different situations. These meds, along with training, have changed our lives for the better. She is still my pup but so much more relaxed and happier.

    Separation Anxiety Relief

    By on

    I have a golden retriever who is a little over a year and half old with severe separation anxiety. She will literally try to eat her way out of the house when we are gone. We tried everything.. more exercise, obedience classes, more chew toys, OTC calming products, CBD oil, you name it. None of it worked. Finally, we asked what our options were regarding prescription meds. Our vet recommended this. It has been a godsend. We saw immediate relief. She is the exact same dog as before but no longer anxious and overly excitable. Wish we would have found this months ago!
