I tried this drug in the fall after trying just about every natural remedy we could think of. My 10 YO has panic attacks during thunderstorms and fireworks, but also for no apparent reason. Shaking, drooling and trying to hide under things. It got especially bad in September and I could not get her turned around. The anxiety was mostly at night and no one was getting any sleep.

So after another thorough workup by the vet - everything normal - she suggested prozac. It was horrible for my dog. We tried for two weeks, mostly at my vet's urging to give it time. She ate only half of her food during that time and lost several pounds. She was really unhappy and not herself at all.

I switched her to trazadone and I have my dog back. She's eating normally, playful, eager to do tricks again and full of energy for walking and frisbee.
