Thus began Piglet’s long history of noise phobias. Below is the story of my struggle to help her cope with these phobias and, eventually, generalized anxiety disorder. While I would urge anyone dealing with anxiety issues to first try natural methods of treatment, it is important to know there are medications that can offer your dog quality of life that may not be obtainable in any other way.

Dog parents who choose medication for a behavioral issue generally do so to treat fears, phobias, anxiety and/or aggression.

Xanax(®) (alprazolam) is a benzodiazepine tranquilizer/sedative that can be used to treat anxious or panicked dogs. It is also sometimes used for the treatment of aggression but this is controversial as the drug can actually have the opposite effect and increase aggression in some cases. When compared to Valium® (diazepam), Xanax does not affect motor skills as significantly at lower dosages.

Nice dog anxiety medications I live in Spain have a little rescue dog. There are strays all over and so distressing to me that I’m going to be emmigrating soon. Very few people neuter their pets and when litters are born they get dumped or worse. The same for cats, there are colonies around bins and some restaurants. Also vetenarians will not prescribe medication for anxiety in pets. This is something I believe would help my little one as I have tried everything in the 4 years I’ve had her. She is terrified of everything, every sound , people and dogs. She is only ok with my friends and their dogs if the dog does not come too close. I have spent a lot of money on a dog trainer who said that I must be more assertive and show her that I am pack leader. This did not help whatsoever. I then out of desperation ordered natural/herbal tablets on Amazon. The first ones which were Valerian and Scullcap made no difference. Then from reading many good reviews I ordered Nature relax and calm care , which contain all the vitamin B’s, Valerian Root and L-Tryptophan and L-Theanine . After 3 weeks she became ill and her stools contained much blood and mucous. I don’t know if this was caused through the tablets but have stopped giving them to her and her stools have returned to normal. I must also add these tablets only made a very slight difference calming her. Now I’m at a loss at what to do next. Do I try another like Bowsers Best?

My dog is 13 years old. I have been giving him Clomaprimine since he was 7 yrs old. He is very much better than the start. Still he is having the separation anxiety and fears but very much less. Should I skip the medicine like once in two days or three days. My son says to give medicine every other day. Is it advicable to do that.
