What is Clomicalm?

Clomicalm (clomipramine) is used to treat separation anxiety in dogs in connection with behavior modification and training. Clomicalm requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:
Dogs (over 6 months of age)

Benefits:

Treats separation anxiety in dogs

Helps reduce symptoms caused by separation anxiety such as, excessive barking, inappropriate elimination, and other destructive tendencies

It is not a tranquilizer or a sedative, and should not affect your dog's personality or memory

How it works:
Clomicalm (clomipramine) is a tricyclic antidepressant and affects chemicals in the brain (serotonin) that may become unbalanced leading to behavioral problems in dogs. Clomicalm Tablets treat separation anxiety in dogs. Separation anxiety is in many cases the root cause of behaviors such as excessive barking, inappropriate elimination, and other destructive tendencies. When used in conjunction with a training program, Clomicalm may be used to help decrease or eliminate these behaviors by helping treat the root cause.

Cautions:
Don't use Clomicalm if your pet is taking a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) such as Anipryl, or selegiline, or has been using a Preventic Collar in the last 14 days. Clomicalm may increase the effects of other drugs and may cause drowsiness. Stop giving your pet Clomicalm and contact your vet if the pet displays any of the following reactions: difficulty breathing, hives, irregular heartbeat, difficulty urinating, seizures, fever with increased panting, muscle stiffness or weakness, or swelling of the lips, tongue, or face.

Very good product I have a Dachshund/Lab mix and she is extremely anxious 24/7. I was prescribed this product by my vet and it has done a world of difference. Now albeit she is not a calm little dog but it was at a point where I was going to have to give her back to rescue because of her anxiety. She would run over the other dogs and cats causing injury, but after Clomicalm she has improved significantly. I tried weening her off to see if she still needed the med and her anxiety returned as before. 08/11/2014
Almost Gave Up My dog, Molly, has been on Clomicalm for two weeks now. Molly (almost 2 yrs old) is absolutely terrified of the world and especially hates children and small dogs. I finally realized that socializing and being extra sweet to her wasn't going to fix her constant fear of everything. One weekend I had just had enough of her being so skittish, so we paid a visit to the vet and she recommended this medication. I have not noticed any difference other than her having diarrhea since the day she started on this medication. I couldn't imagine how miserable it would be to have diarrhea for two straight weeks so I was just about ready to call it quits and drop her off at a friends farm today until I read some of these reviews. According to most of these reviews, she hasn't taken the medication long enough for it to have had any effects. I'll continue to let her take it for another 4 weeks (just in case she is the exception) and I'm praying that it helps her like it has for many other dogs. I'll repost in 4 weeks and hopefully it will be with a 5 star rating. Thanks for sharing y'alls stories and giving me some hope. 04/26/2014
PetMeds was great Usually we get clomicalm at our vets but they have been having supply problems. The generic version was very expensive and on back-order. I got Hurley's prescription filled and got the meds in 2 days. We give it to Hurley(our Italian Greyhound) for anxiety during storms and separation anxiety and it works pretty well. 12/18/2013
A lifesaver, finally something that works I have 3 shih tzus, all of which we love like our own children. The last one we added to our family has been a real challenge, especially when we leave our house. She has chewed our carpet, end tables, boxes...you name it. I tried everything including: tons of kongs, the pheramone collar, pheramone diffuser, calming treats, Quiet Tea from Honest Kitchen, and multiple vet visits. The vet had us try Prozac, but we found that it made her throw up all the time and really made her seem like a zombie. I talked to our vet again and told him there had to be something else we could try. We love her to death, but we can't have her destroying our house and terrorizing our other 2 dogs. He said we could try this medicine, but it was very costly and they don't even carry it anymore in their practice due to the cost. He called the medicine into our local pharmacy, and the cost was $275 for 30 pills. I looked here and found it so much cheaper. She's been taking it for about 2 weeks now, it's working! She isn't like a zombie at all, her personality is the same, but it just seems to take the edge off of her. She hasn't been sick either. I started it slowly, still only giving her half the dose. I would highly recommend giving this a try if your dog is destructive and has anxiety. 12/03/2013
it's o.k. This product is fine, but I prefer Clomipamine, which is the generic for clomicalm. Clomicallm gave my German Shepherd some loose stools. She seems to tolerate the generic much better. I will be glad when it is back in stock. 11/09/2013

Does anyone have any information on when the 80mg Clomicalm wil be available again? We started our almost 2yo GSP on it this fall and it has made a world of difference in her anxiety. The vet is switching us to Prozac for the time being, but this was working so well for her I hate to switch meds. Any info would be much appreciated.

Answer: 
There is a 40mg dose but we are currently out of stock of that strength; however, you can easily give 1/2 of an 80mg tablet to get that dose if needed. Contact your veterinarian to see if that is an appropriate dose for your dog.

Drug Interactions

Are the any other products/medications that should not be used with Colmicalm other than flea medications? My dog has bad allergies and I am wanting to give her some allergy medication (i.e low dose of benadryl ). Just wondering if allergy medications like that would have a interaction.

Answers

Answer: 
You may give an antihistamine to your dog while giving clomipramine; however, I would refrain from using benadryl since it may have additive side effects with the clomipramine such as increased drowsiness and increased heart rate to name a few. I would use a nondrowsy antihistamine such as Zyrtec or Claritin, you can contact our pharmacy department for the proper dosing of these medications for your dog's weight.

Will my dog get to the place that he no longer has to be treated, or is this a lifetime problem?

Answer: 
It really depends on the pet. After your pet has been on the medication for a while, you can see how
they are responding to it. Some pets do stay on it long term, and sometimes the dose can be decreased after a while.
