Effective to reduce anxiety
I have a rescued coonhound with separation anxiety and thunder anxiety. Usually I use a low dose of herbs that do a good job for him daily. But I switched to this for a family move out of state. I continued for about a month in the new location and I think it really helped him adjust. Didn't seem to do too much for thunder though, it just sort of took the edge off his overall anxiety. I didn't keep him on long term as he seemed slightly numb (nothing like a prescrip med though). I would use again temporarily for major life changes.

I had a very anxious miniature dachshund who is a totally different dog after taking Anxitane. I wouldn't say he's a calm dog, but he is much less fearful and is able to walk on a leash now. I am very happy with this medicine.

Helps my cat!!
I've been having problems with my cat developing bladder issues/infections and the vet and I both believe it's due to stress--my husband doesn't care for cats and my cat doesn't care for my husband. Nemo also used to hide a lot when my husband was around. I definitely see a change in his behavior--he's less scared, doesn't hide as much, likes to cuddle more, more relaxed, AND he hasn't had a bladder issue since I started using Anxitane. I give him 1/2 a pill once a day. I definitely recommend giving it a try.

Works, BUT, Not on all dogs..
I bought this for my 10 year old 50 lb flat coated retriever mix who shakes like mad when at the vet. I also have a 2 year old 55 lb golden retriever who came from a traumatic home and has issues with men and some noises. To help them both out, I was told by my vet to try this. Well, the flat coated retriever had no change in behavior when taken as directed. The golden, however, has been much more relaxed since taking this. By the way, I give them as needed- not everyday.
