Charlie has been prescribed with 20 mg od Fluoxetine. I never have experienced with psychotpotic medication for my dogs, so I am super scared and worried. I have not given her one yet.
I thought I will give it to her when I get home so I can monitor her for several hours, instead of going home on my lunch, give it to her, and leave the house.
I am wondering if any of your doodles are on fluoxetine, or similar medication? If so what was your experience..?
Yeah... I hope that works for him.... Prayer.....Seems that my vet had opposite plan. She said that she wanted to start with comfortable level ( I guess that's 20 mg ) and once she begin to feel things are OK, then possibly reduce... She said that there is a possibility that she can totally come off of it as well. It really wasn't like a total magic, though. I still carry kibbles in my pocket when we are out in the public with her, and I watch her body language... When it seems to be too much for her, I do " Look at that " game and feed her kibbles one at the time. http://raisingk9.blogspot.com/2010/11/leslie-mcdevitts-look-at-that...
This seems to help her to associate good thing ( kibble ) with scary things ( stranger ) and ease her anxiety.... Keep me posted.... I will be praying that it works.... My vet said that her Great dane is on Fluoxetine...( I didn't ask how many mg...)
Oh, Don't you love Leslie McDevitt!? I really wished I could actually go to her classes!!!
She is not too far from me like she is in other side of United States, but still too far.....
