Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pet Cayenne, an English Springer Spaniel began exhibiting EXTREME separation anxiety disorder and became aggressive toward her own mother with whom she had lived peacefully for 11 years. Putting her on 20 mg daily turned her into a perfect pet, free of anxiety and aggression but still with good energy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does work So I have 2 male cats who do the territorial spraying. Got the 20mg capsules. Thought maybe I could make the medicine stretch if I cut them in half. Do not recommend doing that...it's quite difficult even with a razor blade. Anyway I tried 2 of the 3 cats I have with anxiety on the regular 20mg pill. Couldn't get one cat to take it. I'm using pill pockets. I absolutely loathe forcing my babies to take medication so pill pockets seemed the way to go. Kirby (one of the males) is an average sized cat but it was clear to me that 20mg was too much for him. I mean it definitely made him chill & not his usual crazy self but it appeared that the wasn't able to get off my bed. He was awake but made a whimpering cry when I'd pet him. I eventually got him up by bringing him a bowl of food. Other cat was Princess our only female who's a tad larger. She lives in her own room because she doesn't like the males. She appeared to handle the 20mg better but I still say it made her a bit too tipsy. So I recommend starting your cat on the 10mg capsules. I'm cutting mine in half now. Also get ready for your cat's personality to change quite a bit. I'm worried for my Kirby because he's not spraying on things which is great but he seems lost and distant. If you take this step to alter your cat's mind remember that it was your choice & it's your responsibility to continue loving your baby even if they change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT PRICE. GREAT SERVICE Usually I would have to pay over $30 for just 30 pills. This deal is amazing and I’m gonna keep shopping with 1800petmeds for all my babies needs. They also added a special big dog treat and I split it in half for Leo and Bella

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonder drug I have a mini boxer who had severe separation anxiety. I literally could not leave the room to make dinner without him whining so loud it would wake the neighbors. But within 2 weeks of being on this med he was calmer. After time once he got used to the medicine his separation anxiety lessened and now I only use the medicine as maintenance. This medicine was a God send and a wonder drug...highly recommend. My dog had NO side effects.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Lab-Anxiety This Medicine saved my dog's life. Ever since I got our Black Lab at 8 weeks old he has had SEVERE separation anxiety. We tried everything from comfort blankets which all he did was chew, toys, bones, even those pheromone diffusers and nothing worked!!! He would get himself so worked up that he would slobber all over himself, all over the cage, and fill up the cage so much that it would flow over on to the floor! It was bath after bath, day after day...I was to the point that it was causing me so much stress that I debated about finding him another home. If you dog has any separation anxiety like mine please try this! He is about 65lbs and gets 30ml per the vet.
