    Still testing it out

    By on

    We got a prescription for Trazadone to help my 10 year old pug, Harvey, sleep all night. He had been waking us all up at 3:30am every morning wanting breakfast. Its kinda working. He has been staying asleep a little longer, but if anything wakes him up, same story, we're all up. We are still testing which dosage to use, 1 pill or 1 1/2. Wish us luck! This Trazadone worked wonders with my last senior, Roxy.

    Works well for occasional use

    By on

    The vet first prescribed Trazodone when my Labrador puppy was neutered this summer. It was a tremendous help in keeping him quiet and calmer while his sutures healed. I did not notice any negative side effects. Now, we use this only on occasion for stressful events (fireworks, thunderstorm, etc.) as he is fairly anxious. Still no negative side effects and the vet did say that it takes a good 90 minutes to fully kick in. I'd recommend giving it a try for situational use but try to give it the appropriate amount of time to kick in.

    Working well for us...

    By on

    for my dog's separation anxiety. Chewy verified the script with my vet and filled it quickly which I really appreciated. The price is much better than I would have paid at my pharmacy. I highly recommend you use them for your pet's prescriptions.

    Works as needed

    By on

    Dog had TPLO surgery, needed this to keep him calm during recovery. Works okay. He's a very hyper dog so he was up and about anyway, but it seemed to keep him from getting too spazzy during his forced confinement period.

    Anxiety Medicine

    This is my dog's prescription for storm anxiety. I am not writing this to leave a review on the product; I am writing this to share my experience with Chewy. Would not recommend.

    Notperfect

    By on

    I thought they were sending me the real one. Just as my vet had sold me originally. Normally I have no issue against generic versions. BUT THAT'S WHEN IT WORKS JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL DRUG. However this one does NOT work like it at all!!! I like saving money but not if it's inferior.

    Calms my anxious, protective pup

    By on

    I was recommended trazedone by my Vet. I have a 70 lb Pitbull who is just over a year old. She has separation anxiety, likes chewing everything including walls and furniture, is very protective of me and her toys and can be aggressive towards some dogs. I was having extreme difficulty getting her to calm down, not only on walks or at dog parks but even if someone rang my doorbell. The trazedone helps with the jumping, barking, furniture chewing and overall excessive excitement towards people or other animals. I try not to give it to her everyday as it makes her kind of mopey and I don't want to change her personality, only her bad habits.

    Calms my German Shepherd

    By on

    This med really works well for my German Shepherd. She's afraid of thunder, rain and fireworks. Once we put her on this med she is much calmer. Doesn't take all the fear away but stops her from shaking uncontrollably. Price is good on Chewy and very convenient to have it delivered to home.
