    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.

Contact your veterinarian if symptoms get worse or if new symptoms develop while the pet is on this medication. Clomicalm may cause drowsiness or dizziness.

    Lifesaver for our dog When I rescued a 10 month old puppy who had been badly abused, I knew he would have issues, but knowing it and living it were two different things. He was TERRIFIED of his crate, so we couldn't crate train him. His anxiety issues caused uncontrollable diarrhea, but he was scared to go outside. I was at my wits end. We started him on 20 mg of clomicalm twice a day and nothing changed so I didn't renew the prescription. Then he went from bad to worse! I took him to the vet again and he's now on 80 mg. It wasn't like he got better overnight, but he did get better. Slowly I was able to train him. He's now housebroken and has learned basic obedience. He was a dog school drop-out before clomicalm. He's still a rambunctious puppy -- now 16 months old -- but he's a NORMAL rambunctious puppy. He's a great dog and I'm so glad we didn't give up on him. 12/31/2014
    Excellent Service I am so happy with my order! I did the 1-2 day shipping and I got the medicine just in time before I went on vacation and left my dog boarding (I give him the pills to calm his anxiety while he's in boarding). The package was left at my door and for some reason my dog kept smelling the box. When I opened the box I found that 1800PetMeds added a treat just for my dog. He was so happy. Thanks so much for that sweet touch & the great service! 11/26/2014
    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

    The dose to give your dog can only be prescribed by a veterinarian.

    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.
