I have tried other liquid forms before where you shoot it into him mouth and he hates it. If I got the liquid form of this, can you put it on his food? Or just my mouth? If you can't, I'll need to get the chews.

Asked by: Bre4416
You can mix the medication in with the food. However your pet must consume all of the food. We can also flavor the medication so it is more palatable for your furry friend. It is always best to discuss your options with your veternarian.

Will this help a dog with kennel anxiety? He barks non stop when in his kennel but he has to be in it when I'm at work.

Asked by: Goggles
Hello, this medication treats behavioral issues in dogs, such as separation anxiety. Amitriptyline requires a prescription from your veterinarian, so they will determine if this is the best option for your dog.

do you add a flavor? This is for my cat. She is really a picky eater and having major problems getting a pill down her. Liquid would be great.

Asked by: brendell1
Yes we can, once your order is placed please contact our sales department and indicate which flavor your pet will prefer.

My vet prescribed amitriptyline for my cat 10 milligrams which one am I suppose to order and how long will it last?

Asked by: lizz
You can order the 10 mg/mL liquid concentration, and give your cat 1 mL to equal the 10 mg dose. This comes in a 15 mL, 30 mL or 60 mL bottle. If you are giving 10 mg daily, a 15 mL bottle would last 15 days, a 30 mL bottle would last 30 days, and a 60 mL bottle would last 60 days. Amitriptyline is also available as 10 mg chewable tablets, in a 30-count bottle that will last 30 days.
