Have you already tried anything like Rescue Remedy? That doesn't really sound like an acceptable reaction -- too much impact on her quality of life overall!

Aw, poor sweetie. Maybe seeing how it would work overtime, but I can understand you wanting to pull her off. I have a dog that I groomed that was just put on Prozac, I'm curious how it's working on him. He has sever temperament issues and is one of my most difficult dogs to groom. He'd probably love to eat my hands if he wasn't muzzled, he means business, but he's a darling when I'm not grooming him though.

She's actually probably about 90% better with the other dogs around. I had been told though not to assume that getting another dog would help her SA so I thought maybe to try to treat it before we'd be moving out again. Now I'm not sure if that's the best option.

I agree that it's too much of an impact on her life. I still want her to be my little crazy girl. I've tried DAP but not RR. DAP didn't do anything at all to help.

i think i'd talk to the vet about either decreasing her dose +/- increasing it gradually or stopping the prozac and trying something different.

harvey took generic clomicalm for his noise/thunderstorm issues and i never noticed any significant side-effects. we have a dog at work who has anxiety and ocd issues and he was awful on clomicalm and much better on prozac. i think it all depends on the dog.

Yes, I agree you can never assume it will work because for some dogs it does not. Thats why people need to be careful not to get a dog ONLY for that reason. I just wondered how it was going with the other ones around.

Hopefully she starts to feel better soon!
Keep us updated.

I am planning to get a dog for a variety of reasons, hopefully it'll help but I have to prepare as if it won't. Based on the way she is here with the other dogs I think it probably will help some.

I have looked at clomicalm and some other med that starts with a c. I really think the vets seem to push prozac though for some reason.

Regular Doctors are the same way, they push the meds they get the biggest incentives from.

If you push the issue though, they should be more willing to reccomend something different.

I figured as much. Kind of like the way science diet ID is the magic cure for all stomach problems.

I would take her off immediately. I had a dog on Prozac and it was HORRIBLE!
