What is Clomipramine?

Clomipramine is used to treat separation anxiety. It is also used sometimes to treat obsessive compulsive disorders and aggression. Clomipramine requires a prescription from your veterinarian, and is sold per capsule.
For: Dogs & Cats

Benefits:

Treats separation anxiety in pets

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

Can sometimes be used to treat obsessive compulsive disorders and aggression
It is not a tranquilizer or a sedative, and should not affect your pet's personality or memory

How it works:
Clomipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant and affects chemicals in the brain (serotonin) that may become unbalanced leading to behavioral problems in pets. Clomipramine treats separation anxiety in pets. 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, Clomipramine may be used to help decrease or eliminate these behaviors by helping treat the root cause. In addition, it is sometimes used to treat obsessive compulsive disorders and aggression

Cautions:
Don't use Clomipramine 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. Clomipramine may increase the effects of other drugs and may cause drowsiness. Stop giving your pet Clomipramine 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.

Anxiety Our dog had been to 3 homes and the shelter before we got him. He was super high strung and could never relax. He paced the halls at night and constantly licked his paws. He would have accidents in the kitchen and vomit every time we left. I am a dog trainer and I had tried everything to sooth him, my other dogs have never had any problems. He has only been taking it for a week, but it has been a major difference, there has been no accidents or vomit in the house for 4 days! He has been sleeping through the night. I am so happy the poor guy can finally relax. 05/12/2011
Works on cats, too! I decided to write a review, since all the others appear to be for dogs. Our cat's vet prescribed clomipramine several years ago for our male cat who has very bad separation anxiety and OCD. He NEEDS this stuff. If he goes more than a day without it, his OCD comes back and he starts obsessively checking different parts of the house like he is on a loop. He becomes riddled with anxiety and does obscene things to blankets and pillows and he can't keep any food down, due to his nervous stomach. We love him dearly and want him to be happy, and clomipramine allows him to act like a normal cat. :) 08/28/2013
This Medication May Have Saved My Dogs Life My Weimaraner has had severe separation anxiety ever since he was a puppy. He would constantly bark when we would leave the house to the point that the neighbors would call the police. We were given tranquilizers by a veterinarian to give to the dog before we would leave the house. The dog would fight through the tranquilizers to the point where he was running into the walls, because he was so high. My dog was used to being at home with my disabled mother for years. She died 6 months ago leaving my dog a nervous wreck. My dog started urinating on the floor every time I would leave the house even for a few minutes. The veterinarian recommended that i take my dog to a behavior specialist at a University. This was not an option for me. I finally told the veterinarian that something had to be done, or I would have to give my dog up for adoption. He started my dog on Clomipramine 50mg which I noticed changes within just a few days. He was on the 50 mg twice a day for a month. Towards the end of the month, I noticed that he was once again becoming more neurotic and had a few eliminations in the house. I asked the veterinarian to increase his medication to 75 mg twice a day. My dog has been on that now for only a few days. He is doing great. His barking has seemed to settle down, and his eliminations in the house have since stopped all together. If you think your dog has an obsessive compulsive disorder or severe separation anxiety, I would recommend talking to your veterinarian about this medication. It may save your dog’s sanity and yours. 02/25/2013
Very pleased with the PetMeds service. The medication is great and does not over sedate, or take the fun out of my Weimaraner. She plays hard, has lots of energy, but is not hysterical anymore. For the first ten days or so, it seemed she was over sedated, but the vet said to hang in there, and we did and it evened out nicely. She's a very happy pooch and so are we and her companion Weimie. 01/21/2013
Great long term I have a large 2 yr. old weimeraner. He has separation anxiety and has been secreting anal glands to the point of infection. Once he started this medication it has stopped and done wonders. 01/20/2013

If it's back-ordered, why can't we place an order for it, then wait for it to be back in stock and shipped? Is there something wrong with the medication?

Answer: 
This medication is currently backordered from the manufacturer due to a shortage in raw material.
We have not received a release date as yet and therefore we are not able to estimate when we will have it in stock again.
