Clomicalm 28 28
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
Worked Great! My dog was tearing up the door every day for months due to separation anxiety and I began to lose hope for a solution. My vet recommended Clomicalm and for the first 2 weeks there was no change, but once the medication got into his system he finally began to act normal again. So my advice is to be patient and give the medication at least 2 weeks before you can expect results. My dog has been happy and relaxed for months now! 08/28/2013
Clomicalm - What a Blessing! My dog has been on Colmicalm for a little over a month and he is doing wonderful. With much prayer, training and using Clomicalm, my dog can now be left at home without being crated. His separation anxiety had progressed to the point of being unbearable. I was even considering giving him away. Colmicalm is expensive, but it works and I highly recommend it. Shadow and I are now very happy! 06/17/2013
Clomicalm for seizures My almost 17 y/o Shih Tzu began to have an ocassional siezure. My vet recommending trying Clomiclam. She is 22 lbs and is taking 10mg 2x/day. While on the medication, she has not had another seizure. If she does not take the Clomicalm, she will have a seizure. It has worked very well for her. 06/10/2013

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.
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.
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?
I know the vets generally say only for three months,but is it possible to keep a dog on the drug for months or even years?My little Chihuahua cross was adopted from the RSPCA about 10 weeks ago and she has general anxiety and severe separation anxiety.Two weeks ago after admitting to myself that I needed helo,the vet put her on 5mg twice a day,to be reduced to 2.5mg twice a day after seven days(he thought as I am retired and home a lot,she would be easy to deal with..WRONG).She was great on the 10mg,but when I reduced to the lower dose all the problems came back,some of them were even worse.So now I have her back on 5mg twice a day and after 3 doses since yesterday morning she is a lot calmer,although a little drowsy(this happened when I first put her on it but after a day or two she adjusted.I have the feeling this is going to take a very long time to deal with,that is why I am wondering about how long.
Answer:¬†Some pets respond within a few weeks others may take much longer than that. You will have to work with your veterinarian and monitor the pet to see if or when you can start tapering the dose to the point where you can eventually stop giving the medication. There is no real way to tell how long this will take, it all depends on how long your pet takes to respond.
