Insulin & Diabetes Medications for Dogs & Cats - 1800PetMeds

I have had 3 Aussies. My 2nd developed anxiety and panic issues in his 11th year, after returning from living overseas and relocating to Montana where he became frightened of thunderstorms, gunshots (from local hunters), and the hot summers. I tried many homeopathic and natural remedies, but finally, with my veterinarian’s recommendation, tried him on Prozac, and was very happy with the results. He was only on it for about 4 months, through the summer when most of the triggers occurred, then I tapered him off. I switched to a natural product called Zylkene 450 mgs (again, suggested by my veterinarian) that is made from a protein from cow’s milk, and it managed his symptoms as he made his way to his end of life at age 12 of liver cancer. I now have my 3rd Aussie, a 6 year old rescue, who is on her 3rd (and final) home. She has some seperation anxiety and will lick her paws constantly when anxious. I use the Zylkene with her also, as I like using the natural products. One last comment…both Aussies have had amazing results with the Thundershirt. I know many people who think they are useless, but I put the Thundershirt on my Aussies BEFORE the trigger starts, as well as their medication if needed, and then ignore them (in order not to excite them or feed into their anxiety) and they are fast asleep – it is literally amazing for my dogs.i hope this information helps.
