Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well My Bichon has terrible separation anxiety and now that she is mostly blind and deaf is fearful of the dark. She is 15 years old and for the past 3 years has had trouble sleeping at night, therefore, we do too. It has gotten much worse and I begged my vet to help us. He suggested Reconcile, but warned it should be used in conjunction with behavior modification. Well it worked great for the first 3 weeks without behavior mod., but then seemed to wear off. Then we tried putting her in another room with the light on all night like the vet suggested and that worked. It seems she gets really anxious when it is quiet and dark and she can't get around. Now she sleeps on a heated bed in a cool room with the lights on all night and she sleeps like a baby. I don't really get why, but hey, I'm so relieved to get a good night sleep!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My less anxious pup Reconcile has really helped our frightened little rescue dog. She was frigtened of all new things, thunder storms, separation. She is much more relaxed and has many less altercations with my yorkie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big relief with urinating in house! I have an elderly Bichon, who started "marking" in the house 3 yrs. ago, and then a Lhlasa followed him doing it too. It has been awful trying to keep up with this problem. I tried everything I could think of....training pads, spraying, cleaning, cleaning, of course putting them in a kennel/cage, but they broke that down....what a pain. Recently, I went to a new vet, and he put them on Reconcile. They've been on it for about a month.....what seems like instantly, there is no urinating anywhere, no bad smell, no going through rolls of papertowels. I can't tell you how wonderful it is. It's expensive, but with this kind of history, totally worth it, and my blood pressure is down! I no longer have to be embarrassed having people over.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I adopted a one year old basenji/pit bull mix a few months ago, and although I know nothing of her past except that she had been in at least two different shelters ,she is the sweetest thing ever. Since she has strong basenji genes she never barks at any human or animal. Maesie never makes a sound unless she's mumbling in her sleep. She was very easy to train and is a very obedient dog, but when I would arrive home from work I would find a total disaster. She would chew almost anything in sight and mess in the house as well. I had tried to crate train her and she seemed to do well in the crate while I cooked dinner, cleaned,etc.; but after videoing her one day I saw disturbing behavior. As soon as I left for work Maesie would begin to bark, howl, whine, shake, and drool. She was biting and scratching at the crate frantically as well. This did not let up for 8 straight hours until I came home, then she was fine. After getting Reconcile, I gave her the first dosage and left for work as normal. I videoed her again mainly to see if she would develop any side effects. She carried on as normal for the first 20 minutes, then much to my surprise she laid down and was calm the rest of the day. My dog and I are very pleased with the results of this medication. I love the fact that they are chewable. Since she likes the taste and even looks forward to getting it every morning, I don't have to worry about hiding it in her food. This will give me time now to be able to train her properly and get her used to my leaving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost a normal dog! Been using Reconcile for appox 2 months. Yes, it does work, I have an adopted lab/great dane mix with an unknown past, he's unpredicatable and previously barked non-stop for the 3 hours between my getting home and waiting for the dog daddy (husband). He will start to bark, but actually stops when I tell him "auggie go auggie bed" and leaves the window area. He's better on walks too, less aggressive towards other dogs than before. Product does work- he doesnt' seem to like the taste so I mix it up w/food.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from major day to day help Reconcile has made a huge difference in my small mixed breed, Maltese....mix, sometimes I can hardly believe it myself. After Hurricane Katrina my dog could not be alone, without a human, for more than a couple of mins. Although I have not left him alone more than an hour since he has been on reconcile it has made a huge difference in our lives. Just to let all know, my dog knows I feel sorry for him and he plays me like a fiddle. Changing me has been much harder than changing him...LOL

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Difference We adopted a dog that along with being completely deaf, had major separation anxiety issues. Sweet dog most of the time, (if you like a dog that follows you around), but if we left, he scratched (and ruined) the front door, would urinate and defecate in various places, bark continuously, and would spill his water and food all over. We decided to buy a baby gate to limit his space, but that didn't help at all...just confined the mess to a smaller area! I was ready to give up and then read about this medication. It has been a LIFESAVER. Within 4 days, we noticed a considerable difference. He still would be stressed (and bark a lot) when we left, but we noticed fewer and fewer messes each time we would leave. His obsessive licking seemed to have calmed a little as well. We noticed his lack of appetite and a little lethargy at first, but it has come back. (We switched his food to a lamb/rice mix and he got his appetite back!) This medication (along with the training they suggest) worked wonders. It's now 3 weeks with the meds, and I continue to be amazed. We were able to leave him for 5 hours (about the longest we would ever need to) and there was NO mess and little "drama" when we returned. Interestingly enough, our vet started him out on a half dose, too! Cuts the cost in half, and it seems to be enough medication to do the trick. (VERY hard to split the pills, though). I would highly recommend this medication if you are even considering it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems To Be Effective My dog is a year and a half old and he started licking his paws and biting the hair off of his hind legs. The vet wasn't sure why he was biting the hair off of his legs because his skin wasn't irritated so he gave my dog an oral flea medicine, a cortizone shot, and suggested that I put him on Reconcile. He suggested I walk him more because he's probably bored and that's why he licks his paws. He also thought he also might suffer from separation anxiety and that's why he suggested Reconcile. I didn't get the prescription for Reconcile at the time because it was REALLY expensive at their office. When I went home I looked into separation anxiety more and the more I researched it, the more I realized that my dog really does have this condition. So luckily on 1-800 Pet Meds they had Reconcile (much cheaper than the vet's office) and at first my dog reacted badly to it. It made him sick (throwing up), not eating, and he seemed to be even more depressed. I was going to stop giving it to him, but the vet said this is normal. A couple weeks later the medicine seemed to kick in. He stopped biting his legs, he was more lively, he was eating normally again, and he just seemed like he was back to his regular self. I don't think this will work for every dog, but luckily it has for mine. He constantly needs someone around him or else he gets very sad. But this medicine has definitely alleviated some of his separation anxiety. When I would first give him the pill he would eat it just fine, but now I have to put it in something in order for him to eat it hence the 3 star rating. But overall I have been happy with the medicine. It hasn't relieved his separation anxiety completely so that's why I couldn't give it 5 stars, but I don't think there's always a miracle drug for everything. I have no idea if I have to have him on it for the rest of his life because I don't know how to gauge if he's ready to be off it. This is definitely NOT a cheap drug but I would rather pay for it than have my dog be unhappy. I would suggest researching separation anxiety before putting your dog/cat on this. Walking my dog more didn't help, he needed something more to help regulate his moods, but maybe that's all your dog needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Results Well my dogs been on Reconcile for about 12 days and what a difference. He has severe seperation anxiety and would break bars on his crate trying to get out when I wasn't home. I've added extra locks and have been working with a trainer, and now 12 days later I come home to the crate intact and no more broken bars, he's calm and relaxed. I hope he stays this way when we are done with the medication.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly A LIfe Saver My little chihuahua was prescribed Reconcile by his veterinarian. I can't tell you how effective it is in curbing his separation anxiety. He still has his spirit, but has virtually stopped his howling. Thank you Dr. Mark and thank you to Reconcile. If more people knew about this aid, fewer dogs with this problem would end up at the pound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's hope I have an 11 month old Ausie/Border Collie mix named Lucky. He had severe separation anxiety that wasn't cured by being with my other dog. Every time I went to work it was a guess as to what would be destroyed when I got home. The destruction was daily. I tried training, herbal remedies, and Valium. Each would help, but not to the point where the destruction ended. I even tried crates, and Lucky would destroy them. When I tried Reconcile Lucky was able to be crated to limit the destruction while he went through desensitizing training. The process has been slow, but I don't think it would of been possible without Reconcile. The only think I wasn't happy with was the sparse training instructions that came with the product. I found more instruction from the 1800petmeds site than with the product. It is so important to have training with medication for true success. In the 2 months I've used the product Lucky has improved more than in the last 4 months combined.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Crazy gracie We found this 13 month old basset on craigs list. She had already gone through 3 homes. Her first owner was elderly and passed away. The second owner had several dogs and Gracie was having problems getting along with other dogs. The owner that had Gracie before us had 2 children and needed to find a new home for Gracie. She came to us a little thin and she felt that she needed to fight for the food from the Husky we own. Gracie didn't do well when we would leave her in the crate to go anywhere. She would bark the entire time and mess in her cage. We went to the vet and she suggested Reconcile. It has done wonders for Gracie. She seems to be much happier and doesn't bark or mess in the cage anymore. Gracie and Lizze the Husky are the best of friends. Gracie is now a healthy 40 pound basset and has a love for life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Difference After First Day! Our Golden/Ridgeback mix has always had anxiety issues when bad weather would happen but when the bizarre repetitive behaviors started occurring when the weather was fine, we decided it was time to see the vet. He ran all of her bloodwork first to rule out Thyroid and any other medical issues then prescribed Reconcile. It seemed like she was better by the next day. Definitely within the first week she is much more relaxed, less manic. The exotic snowstorm that blanketed Central Texas yesterday would have had her going insane. Instead she seemed a little anxious but went into the bedroom and lay down and napped. Her attitude is much better, she's happier, more playful and her appetite is improved. I highly recommend this medication!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! We adopted a dog whose original owner had fallen ill (paramedics through the house, owner never came back, strangers took him away). He's a sensitive guy and when we first got him he was sad- constantly at my side, barely ate, barely played, and looked worried all the time. When I went to work, anxiety took over. He opened door knobs (round ones!), busted out of crates, tore any blanket, pillow, rug, coat and fabric decorative item he could get his teeth into. Tearing is a self soothing behaviour for dogs (like chewing fingernails). The vet diagnosed him with separation anxiety likely due to the trauma of changing families and worry that we would not come home like his previous owner hadn't. After trying sedatives to no avail, she prescribed Reconcile. I put him in doggie daycare for a week and a half to make sure the medicine kicked in and Voila! I was able to leave him home alone. I've always had dogs so I was doing the BOND program naturally. We did have a small regression after a long weekend and upped the dosage but after a month and a half, we were able to wean him off the medication and he is now a happy, adjusted dog that I can leave home with full expectations I will come home to an intact house (although he does still open the coat closet doors while we're gone). Before Reconcile I was unsure if I could keep Mason. Now I am VERY happy with this product and my good boy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feeling positive I went to the vet looking for help- Oliver always had a bit of separation anxiety from puppyhood, but after I had surgery in 11-08 and was home until March '09- it got really bad.. He was never a destroyer so to speak- but as I would leave the house he would literally grab my arm- cutting me with his paws or trying to bite me to get me to stay...I tried everything- including retraining- nothing worked at all.. Vet said to try Reconcile and well for the first few weeks seemed like nothing was happening- then on 3 different days he regressed- actually eating my door frame one time- and the window sill another.. I thought he was worse with the Reconcile but then all of a sudden that behavior stopped and he seems soo much calmer as I leave- I had another surgery in September and was home 2 months- thought it would be a disaster but not too bad- the only casualty? His brand new crate - He uses his big old block head and forces his way out of the crate- Never saw a dog do it before- but the crate is locked and he's in it- I come home and he meets me at the front door- tail wagging like he is just happy as a clam to see me- nothing has been destroyed- he doesn't mess anywhere in the house, worse damage now- his killer tail knocking items off the coffee table and the dents on my couch from where he spent the day sleeping!!!! This I can deal with!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Constant licking and barking With the use of Reconcile the licking rarely occurs, barking is less intense. The only thing that was hard getting use to was the initial side effect of restlessness. But after 5 days of use, that went away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elvis is much better I moved to Brooklyn, NY from NC with my dogs. For one of them the move was incredibly traumatic, and brought out a lot of anxiety and fear aggression. In addition to behavior modification therapy, I tried other anti-anxiety and "anti-depression" medications with modest success. When I switched to Reconcile he experienced a significant improvement, and is now much happier, more relaxed with almost no fear aggression. I "tested" the role of the Reconcile in his improvement (as opposed to simply getting used to his new home and the behavior modification) by taking him off it for a couple of weeks, and saw a significant recrudescence of his anxiety. Back on Reconcile, and back to a happier more relaxed Elvis. I've definitely had excellent success with Reconcile.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much less anxious I started my dog on Reconcile after trying 2 other anti-anxiety meds. After many months on each drug, I saw no difference in his behavior. I decided to give Reconcile a try. He was on Reconcile for overall anxiety, coupled with fear aggression. It took aprox a 1 1/2 months to "kick in" but I have noticed a considerable difference in his overall mood. He is much more relaxed on walks, much more playful & affectionate. Simply put, he's a happier dog, which was my goal when putting him on medication in the first place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great results Bella came to us abused, filthy, flea-ridden but precious. She would absolutely go nuts when she saw another person or another dog. I hired very expensive trainers who gave her six sessions then recommended Reconcile for her anxiety. It has made her into a different dog. While she still gets upset with strangers in the house and she still barks at other dogs, her anxiety doesnt go from one to one hundred in five seconds and it takes less time to bring her back down to calm. The only downsides were she cut back dramatically on her food intake and she was constipated for the first three months. But she is back to eating her usual amount and the constipation seems to have gone away. This medicine made her a sweeter dog and it's made our family much happier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life Saving Med! I spent 5 years trying to figure out why all semblance of decency escaped my dog whenever I left the house. I tried all manner of behavioral modification techniques, and even doggy daycare. Not to say that there wasn't some small amount of progress made there, but when I peeked back in through a window to view his post- departure panic attacks one day, I was horrified by the state in which I saw him. He was obviously in pain, and bound to physically hurt himself in his tantrum. It took nearly 2 months to find his proper dosage, and let him adjust, but I have never been disappointed with the results! At one time, for financial reasons, I tried working him off of the Reconcile, with no moves in sight and a strict routine to follow, But within a few weeks, I was coming home to messes on the floor and torn furniture- regardless of if I'd been gone 20 minutes or 3 hours. He's back on now, happy and doing incredible. And I will never subject him to the agony of his anxiety again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not sure if meds work, but bond does My dog has had bad anxiety in the past. I finally got a majority of it under control by hiring a trainer and learning ways to reduce his anxiety(pretty much the BOND program), and then I had to move.. which set off his anxiety again. He would bark all day when I was gone, pace, pant and not eat. I put him on reconcile for 2 months and while he did eventually stop barking and pacing and did eat, I'm not convinced it was the medicine. I think it was because he got used to his surroundings and I used methods that I previously had learned from a trainer(same as BOND program) to help reduce it. He is high energy and it did seem to calm him and make him less hyper, but other than that.. no idea. The vet wanted to keep him on it for a year or longer, but I didn't feel safe as trials were only done for 8 weeks.

Questions

Is it bad to only use this mediation only on certain days?

Is it bad to give to my dog only on the weekdays, when I'm at work 8 hours a day? The weekends are fine, she has no problems as someone is always home. Would it cause any problems to only give it to her when needed?

Should we continue?

Our boxer/lab has severe seperation anxiety (chews door frames and scratches doors, rips up carpet to the point of bleeding). She has exhibited these symptoms after 6 weeks of reconcile combined with increased exercise and behavior modification. We have left her for a max time of 3 hours and our apartment carpet is torn to shreds. Should we request a higher dose from her vet or discontinue the medication?
Asked by: Roxy0130
Reconcile should be working by now. I recommend trying a different class of separation anxiety medication, like Clomipramine. Be aware, if you take your dog off Reconcile, it must be tapered. It cannot be stopped cold. Your vet can assist with a taper schedule.

Are any blood tests or the like required before starting a Golden Retriever on Reconcile?

Asked by: saint-lover
Because this medication is metabolized in the liver your veterinarian may require a liver function test before prescribing this medication. In addition, this test may be required periodically as long as the pet is on the medication. Other factors that may determine the need for additional blood tests include the pet's age and other medications the pet may be taking.

I would also like to know if you can use reconcile only at certain times--like when we are out of town

Asked by: mabe
Reconcile is not the kind of medication to be used on an "as needed" basis. You should give the medication exactly as prescribed by your veterinarian which most likely is once a day in conjunction with a behavior modification program.

Are Reconcile and Prozac exactly the same?

I have a dog that was spinning all the time. The vet put her on Reconcile and within a few weeks she almost completely stopped spinning and was a much happier more normal dog - an incredible change. The vet said I could give her people prozac now for a much lower price because it is exactly the same. So I have her on prozac now and her spinning has come back a lot. It is very upsetting to me and I'm wondering why.... is prozac a little different? is it going to take a few weeks to kick in...is it going to work for her at all. I'm trying to find out what to do.....Thanks a lot.
Asked by: Sandy
Chemically, Reconcile and Prozac (fluoxetine) are exactly the same. However, the difference is in the strength of the drugs. Prozac is available in 10 mg and 20 mg strengths. Reconcile is available in 8 mg, 16 mg, 32 mg, and 64 mg strengths. Perhaps the pet is not being given an equivalent strength using Prozac.

How do I know if my dog needs anxiety meds?

I have a 3 1/2 year old male mix. Husky/Pyrenees. He had parvo when he was a puppy. My cousin and I kept him alive by giving him sugar water and attention. After about a week he started getting better. Well, I was going through some bad times of my own (anger) violent anger. I think I ruined my dog from my past actions. I have never beat on him. I would get mad at any little thing and he would go away from me. I have been doing great with my anger problem. I still go off on somethings though. Oreo has never slept outside. I leave him outside during the day, unless it's raining. He never sleeps outside overnight. For three threes + I have been doing this. So, I play the PS3 online, and when things don't go my way I get mad sometimes and curse and yell, he looks at me with those sad eyes and ears. If there is anyone else in the room he will try to get under them or on them. Now I just got a 8 week old Chiwawa, mini pin mix. She is very spunky. She jumps at him, biting on his neck and ears. He doesn't do anything, or play back, and when I tell her "no" or "stop" he does the same as he does while I'm playing my game. He only acts this way inside, never outside and not always inside. What can I do to make him not act so scary like that. Could he be suffering from my past issues? Is there anything I can do or he can take for this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

My Vet is out of Reconcile. Is there a drug for humans that is the same as Reconcile 8mg . ?

Asked by: Julie
prozac.... check with your vet. It comes in generic form now and the vet can write a three month script and you will be amazed at your savings. But you must get the script from the vet. Don't try to do this own your own. You may have to divide the meds into pill pockets but just call the vet. I'm sure they will tell you how to do this. One other thing... the vet can write the reconcile for a higher dose and then you can break the tabs into 1/4. That's what I do as my vet gave me the dose amount and told me to break it. I put the little piece in a half a pill pocket and Kreasy eats it up. Ask about that as well. Good luck, Kreasy's mom

When will I start to see results?

My dog has been on reconcile for 2 weeks and I haven't noticed any big changes. When will I start to see a difference if any? My dog chews things, screams bloody murder when people come in the house or leave the house and has a random biting problem. SEVERE seperaton anxiety. Never had a dog like him and hoping these meds will kick in soon because I have wasted too much money on training as it is.
Asked by: Angela
It took my dog about 2 weeks to show any difference, so I would at least try it for a month. My dog doesn't have SEVERE separation anxiety, so maybe that's why it started working quickly. Your dog might take a little longer. My dog stopped biting his hind legs, but he still barks his head off when people knock at the door and he's never really had a chewing problem (just as a puppy). Hang in there hopefully in a month or two your dog will have some positive changes in his/her behavior with this medicine.

What medication should I use?

My dog is terrified of thunder & fireworks she shakes and scratches things and gets destructive if alone. What could help her?
Asked by: laterjan
Reconcile! Our dog went insane over weather, then started unusual repetitive behaviors like circling the sofas and jumping over the ottoman at the end over and over and over, and desperate to get out of the house, which is probably how she ended up at the pound where we adopted her. Ask your vet about Reconcile. See my and others reviews of this amazing medication. It's like night and day and the bizarre snowstorm we had yesterday (3+ inches in Central Texas is bizarre), she would have been climbing the walls if she hadn't started Reconcile the week before. She slept through it, very relaxed. If the behavior starts happening when the weather isn't bad, her OCD/depression is getting worse.

Like any SSRI, which Reconcile is, you should probably have your dog's liver panel run every six months to a year depending on age. Otherwise, it's a simple SSRI and it's like any other anti-depressant/mood stabilizer, it's lifetime treatment of the neurologic condition that causes the underlying condition causing the symptoms that require the medication.

using reconcile but can not pay $47/30

Can you recommend another product???
Asked by: bill
I understand. You should idscuss the economic issues with your veterinarian. Perhaps he/she would consider fluoxetine 10mg .it's the same chemical, but the strength is slightly different. Fluoxetine 10mg is less expensive than the 8mg Reconcile you are referring to.
