Description

Fluoxetine is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) that is prescribed to treat a variety of behavioral problems caused by separation anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders. It works by increasing the effectiveness of serotonin in the brain, which aids in the management of anxiety and depression. Customers may receive this drug under the names Reconcile, Prozac.

Uses

Fluoxetine tablets are indicated for the treatment of separation anxiety in conjunction with a behavior modification plan.

Possible Side Effects

Common, but not serious side effects include, drowsiness, lack of energy, reduced appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, shaking, shivering, tremors, restlessness, or panting.

You don’t have to be overly concerned if you see any of these unless they persist or worsen. Contact your veterinarian if this happens.

Drug & Food Interactions

Precautions

Fluoxetine tablets are not recommended for the treatment of aggression. Fluoxetine tablets have not been clinically tested for the treatment of other behavioral disorders. Studies to determine the effects of Fluoxetine tablets in breeding, pregnant, or lactating dogs and in pets less than 6 months of age have not been conducted.

    Separation Anxiety

    By on

    Although it doesn't cure my dogs separation anxiety, this makes it easier to train her since it calms her nerves. Training has been so much easier since she got prescribed this med. I also appreciate that the capsules are smaller than they were before. Make it easier for my 13lb dog to swallow.

    Prozac for my doodle!

    We already use chewy for our food but prescriptions are new for us!!!!! Great, money saver and fast delivery. I love the fact that I dont have to make a special trip to the vet. In these uncertain times of the coronovirus I would rather not leave my home.

    Meds for Rocco

    By on

    It was extremely difficult to order the Fluoxetine! I had a prescription for 30 pills and on the site it would only come up with one pill checked. So it was so confusing and after several tries I gave up. Weeks later I tried again and the same issue persisted! I then decided that I would order it, even if only one pill was delivered. However, I saw a scale that allowed me to select 30 or more and selected 30 since that is what the prescription was for. I received 30 pills some time later. Very confusing!

    Helps our little barker

    By on

    We have a Shiwawa, which is a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua mix; a little Shih Tzu who barks at everything. She had always barked, but about a year ago she started nipping at ankles: our UPS driver, visitors, people jogging down the road etc. Thankfully she is cute and little so her bites weren’t harmful, but still very, very troubling. We tried different training techniques, got a ultra sonic barking device (which helped a lot), but the nipping wouldn’t stop. We started to use Prozac and over a few months, and with the help of the ultrasonic barking device she calmed down dramatically. We were able to praise her for being calm, and reinforce that behavior. Before we were yelling at her, escalating We have a Shiwawa, which is a Shih Tzu/Chihuahua mix; a little Shih Tzu who barks at everything.

    From OCD to a happier Goldendoodle

    By on

    My golden doodle is 6 years old and he was very nervous, always whined, separation anxiety to the max. No matter what the circumstances Kody was a mess! We went on vacation for a week two summers ago and my stepson who lived with us at the time, took care of Kody. Kody was so anxious that he was vomiting and diarrhea for 4 days because we were not there. What a mess! He was like this when we took him for walks too. I hated seeing him get so upset. My vet started him on a low dose of Prozac and we saw a little improvement. She then upped the dose to 60mg a day and what a difference! Wow!! He is calmer, he doesn’t get sick when we leave him, he is not whining, panting or pacing the floor My golden doodle is 6 years old and he was very nervous, always whined, separation anxiety to the max.
