Separation Anxiety Medication

Clomicalm is a tricyclic antidepressant (clomipramine) that's used to treat separation anxiety in dogs as part of behavior modification plans. Clomicalm makes it easier for dogs to learn new, positive behaviors. By easing anxiety caused by separation, Clomicalm controls destructive behavior, vocalization, and other negative behaviors.

Clomicalm is a tricyclic antidepressant that effectively minimizes the symptoms of separation anxiety disorder in dogs when used in conjunction with a comprehensive behavior modification program. When used as prescribed, Clomicalm can control barking, moodiness, inappropriate defecation and urination, and other symptoms of separation anxiety.

Benefits of Clomicalm:

  • Controls negative behaviors without altering your dog's personality
  • Very effective when used in conjunction with behavior modification
  • Helps manage destructive behavior, vocalization, inappropriate elimination, excessive salivation, and other symptoms caused by anxiety
  • Side effects are generally mild when used as directed
  • Helps control obsessive-compulsive behavior
  • Does not affect memory
  • Works by altering your dog's brain chemicals, not by sedation

Use this medication as prescribed. Do not allow children to handle or administer Clomicalm. For use in dogs only.

Use of Clomicalm is not intended to replace behavioral modification; the medication is most effective when used along with a behavior modification program.

The recommended daily dose of Clomicalm is 0.9-1.8 mg/lb. Administer this medication as a single dose or as a divided dose given twice daily. Dividing the dose may reduce side effects.

  1. Hand-feed Clomicalm with a small amount of food to reduce vomiting.
  2. Give 5 mg daily to dogs weighing 2.75-5.5 lbs.

Frequency of Use:

Improvement in symptoms may not be evident for days or weeks. Do not stop using this medication unless told to do so by your veterinarian.

Do not use for longer than 12 weeks unless instructed to do so by your veterinarian. Withdrawal from Clomicalm should involve tapering the dose while monitoring the dog for behavioral changes and withdrawal symptoms.

Storage:

Store Clomicalm at controlled room temperature, away from moisture, and in the original container. Keep away from pets and children.

It is a violation of Federal Law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.

Clomicalm reduces symptoms of anxiety by affecting levels of serotonin and norepinephrine in the central nervous system of dogs. Although Clomicalm may cause some drowsiness and lethargy, this sedative effect is not responsible for the reduction in symptoms.
