Clomicalm 23 23
Saved Us It has helped tremendously! My dog is a trained, well-mannered dog w/ severe separation anxiety. He scratched/chewed at crate to the point that he had cuts. If left loose in house: jumped through window and two screens. Vet feared that he‚Äôd severely injure himself from jumping thru windows. Now 3 months into meds: he can be left alone (loose or in the crate) without hurting himself or damaging more property. It took 3 weeks to kick in. And although our dog still gets upset when you leave, he handles it so much better! This medicine saved our home & gave our dog peace of mind. It does not drug your dog or make them tired. it only fixes the main issue- which is why I recommend it! 12/07/2011
Clomicalm and Training Clomicalm has been a life saver for my dog,Paka,and for my family. Paka was rescued 7 Years ago.We had to have a Positive Trainer (locally),a World known Positive Trainer and A holistive Vet tohelp us with Paka--after putting Paka on Clomicalm,and after one year of being on a special plan for Separation Anxiety,we now have ahappy and healthy doggie. We also are able to go away from the house without coming home to a panic=stricken dog--and chewed up doors. We have tried to get Paka off Clomicalm,but he cannot function well,and as muchas we hate drugs,we have to have quality of life for him and for us. Thanks Ro 11/05/2011
Made her sick After 2 days on this medication she got sick. 08/20/2011
Saved my puppy and my home! My dog was a rescue and for six months peed on everything in my house - carpet, bed, couch - everywhere. I noticed that she did it as soon as I left or came into the house. I had a million tests run on her and they found nothing. Within the first day of giving her this medication, she has never peed in the house again!!!! 07/19/2011
IT'S GOOD Our cocker, at 8 1/2 yrs old started peeing in the house for no reason. Nothing had changed-same people, same routine. Went to vet-did tests, all was ok. he reccommended Clomicalm. And knock on wood, he has stopped going in the house. Needless to say, we are very happy with this medication. 07/18/2011

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.
I read that Preventic collar should not be used in last 14 days and my pet is on it daily at 40mg. They are also on Revolution and was told that there are no issues with using tick collars with this product.
Answer:¬†Preventic collars should not be used with Clomicalm due to a drug interaction. The scalibor and biospot collars are safe to use whike giving the Clomicalm since there is no known drug interactions with these collars.
My cat recently started taking 2.5mg a day of clomicalm for anxiety uses as well for urinating around the house. We have seen a good improvement so far but we are also noticing that she has not been going to the bathroom as often (both urinating/bowel). She can go a whole day without urinating, but when she does go, she goes quite a lot. I can't say the same for her bowel movements though unfortunetely. I do see constipation can be a side effect, so maybe I will have to consult my vet on that topic. Anyhow, my concern is if her not urinating as often as she used to is an issue and has something to do with the meds? I don't see any signs of dehydration, she has been real tired though since starting the medication. (note: her urine was already checked for infection before the medication started and everything was fine)
Answer:¬†Without knowing if the pets water consumption has had any changes, it's most likely that Clomipramine the active ingredient in clomicalm is causing urinary retention.Sedation is also a side effect of the medication which could explain why she is tired. Please contact your veterinarian to discuss these concerns.
