What is Fluoxetine?

Customer Reviews
Fluoxetine is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 57.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product My 11 yr old Lab has had anxiety since the day we met, he was 6 months. It has gotten worse with age. His behavior when left alone became very distuctive. My vet recommended Fluoxetine. It has made a big difference for my boy. I can leave and not worry about what I will find when I get home. Fluoxetine calms him down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked amazing for my Weimaraner I have a deaf Weim. She is 2 1/2. About 7 months ago she was attacked by another dog. Then she needed 2 vertebrae of her tail amputated due to injury. During surgery she suffered a seizure. After those incidents, she started have SEVERE anxiety. She would pace literally for hours upon hours. She would salivate, not let us near her, not make eye contact, be fearful of everything. Different things would set her off. It was the BBQ, the kitchen, the microwave, and different smells. It got to the point that nothing at all would put her in a frenzy. It was so sad to see her this way. There was no quality of life for her. She was like a completely different dog. We tried 2 different meds before this one. After about 2 weeks on this, our dog was back. The transformation is AMAZING!!! She has no fear and no anxiety at all. She runs around with her tail wagging and so happy like she is telling us thank you for helping. I honestly did not think it was going to work because she was so bad. But, I am happy it did. I am not one to normally write reviews, but if I can help one person in the direction of trying it then I am happy. I can't promise it will work for your dog. I can only tell you my experience. I also found that with a tiny amount of spreadable cheddar cheese (from Aldi) she has no problem swallowing the pill. Be patient and consistent. Good luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful My pit has been on this about 6 months. She was a bait dog and severely abused so her anxiety is through the roof. The vet put her on this because even with training I was having a hard time with her and her anxiety. It has been a life saver !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't Help? My, now 6yr old yorki has been on fluoxitine for 2yr. She has very bad anxiety,but this drug really didn't do anything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Dog My vet prescribed this to my dog when he was going though late in life separation anxiety. He broke out of a metal kennel, ate my back door from the knee down, busted windows, and even lost teeth in the process. He hated when I left and it broke my heart. I could barely leave the house but I couldn't stand to put him down, he is my best friend. Fluoxtine in combination with training (!!!) and the adoption of a new sister saved the life of my very sweet but anxious dog. Give the medicine time to work, though! It took 6 months of consistent medication to get him back to normal. And he will probably have to take it for the rest of his life but it's worth every penny to me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Helpful for managing anxiety We adopted out shepherd/cattle dog mix, Charlie, not knowing he had severe separation anxiety. He would literally bark non stop, drool excessively, pace, yelp, etc. when left alone. He was too anxious for behavior modification alone to be effective, so our vet recommended combining training with fluoxetine. Charlie takes 10 mg/day (He weighs 45 pounds). It took awhile for us to see a noticeable difference- maybe two and half months? but Charlie now spends most days snoozing on the bed until we get home. I want to note that this is not a cure all drug- Charlie does still have some up and down phases where he has some mild anxiety when left alone, but this usually mellows out after a week or so. Overall, it's made him a much happier, more relaxed dog and he doesn't drive our neighbors crazy. There have been no side effects- no changes in appetite, energy levels, personality, etc.

Q&A

my lab is about 70 # and 13 years old. He has developed anxiety problems this past year. He is on two prozac capsules, 20mg each which helps some but not enough. Should I increase the dosage to 3 capsules ?

Asked by: zack
Also, with your dog's older age, fluoxetine has a long-half life which can be prolonged in older patients (meaning the drug will remain longer in the body than if he were younger). Adding an additional pill can raise the amount of drug in the body even higher, giving a greater chance of toxicity to occur.

Is this the same Fluoxetine that is prescribed for humans? I have not yet filled my dogs prescription and my sister-in-law has a bottle of 20mg that she offered me, but I just want to confirm that the ingredients are identical. 

Asked by: MrsCampos
While the active ingredient, Fluoxetine, is identical in both humans and pets, the inactive ingredients may be different. It is not recommended to share Human medications with pets and vice versa. Some inactive ingredients may be harmful to pets, while safe to us.
