Keeps my dog calm by Crystal from Toronto11/21/2013
My beagle has very strong separation anxiety and the vet recommended this product. He has been taking this for over 3 years and along with training there has been a marked improvement. I like how the pills can easily be split in half since his dosage is half a pill for each meals 2x daily.
I love this product by JLG from Kansas05/22/2013
I have a very anxious Tibetan Terrier who used to wear a Thunder Shirt full time. The veterinary prescription daily anxiety medication just made him more whacky and the as-needed tranquilizer made him too sleepy. With this product he has been able to stop wearing the Thunder Shirt and his barking and general anxiety are so much better. If we forget his dose we can really tell a difference. I love that he is able to be his relaxed, super sweet self without taking prescription medication. I am so glad our vet suggested we try this product.
Very good initially, but tolerance developed fast by Tuffyb from Hartselle, AL01/01/2011
We have seven dogs. One of them is a compulsive groomer (secondary to neglect as a puppy), and she is generally anxious as well.
I have used Anxitane (and another L-theonine preparation) with her in particular. These pills worked very well at first to calm her down at night, when she is most likely to compulsively lick herself. After a few days, however, I had to increase the dose to get the same effect. Now we are up to 3-4 100mg pills per night, but this amount also has stopped working as well, so I have to supplement the Anxitane with Benadryl and/or herbal relaxants. In my other dogs, who do not have generalized anxiety, a low dose works very well, usually, to help them rest better at night (or during thunderstorms).
amazing. by pitlove06/29/2011
Anxitane has been a miracle! after 2 weeks of continued regular use i noticed a totally different dog. She is still her fun and playful self however is much more relaxed around strange people, places, and pups. I couldnt be happier.
Best Product Ever by saralls from Silver Spring, MD05/30/2012
This product has done amazing things for our dog. She has always been shy and nervous, but since being on this she is like a different dog. I'm just sorry it took me so long to find out about this product.
Makes a HUGE difference!! by JW03/09/2013
I've been using the M&L size Anxitane for a cat for 3 years and have tried decreasing him to the S dosage but he starts spraying again. Anxitane has significantly reduced his spraying and helps him get along better with the other cats. I recommend Anxitane to anyone who is looking for short-term (people visiting the house, vet trips) or long-term (nervous personality, inter-cat squabbles) solutions to behavior issues in dogs and cats. I like that you can use it WITH more standard treatments like prozac or buspar.
Takes the edge off. by gsdsteph from Oskaloosa, KS11/20/2013
I have a 2 y/o GSD pupster. He goes bananas at squirrels, deer, turkey...anything that moves in "his" yard. Took about 4 days to see the difference after a month, it had made a pleasing, subtle difference..unless deer were on the porch! I like this natural product. No lethargy or dimming of alertness.

We are using these nutraceuticals for behavior modification, and they have worked wonders! They are also great for animals with anxiety issues.

Really helps by saralls from Silver Spring, MD06/16/2013
My dog has been on it for a little over a year and everyone who knew her before can see a big change. She still has issues but is so much better.
Does the trick! by chef from Cleveland Oh01/08/2013
I have a severly high strung Dachshund and use this product along with the Pro-quiet, Adaptil plug-in and a thundershirt and wow...what a different dog! I am all about natural remedies and these all help to make him calm and peaceful with out knocking him out. He acts like a happy, well adjusted dog now! I also started training him too. So...I don't know how each would work by themselves alone..but everything together has made this dog and my life much calmer! And all of these are SO much cheaper here than from the Vet! I am doing the auto ship too so I am sure to have them and at an even greater discount!
Works great!!! by tnord from Iowa01/01/2010
I gave this to an agressive bengal cat who was attaching other cats in the household and it worked great. It can be crushed and put in cannned food and is not rejected. I had previously tried to pill him with script from the vet (elivil) it was like trying to pill a pole cat and very bitter, I could not disguise it in anything.
This is by far the best calming aid I have ever found and it will get me through these winter months in a multi cat household.
Works for stressed out cat by JVT06/06/2012
Our cat (adopted from abusive situation at age 6) was an emotional mess. Her main way of dealing was chewing her fur to the skin on her back, belly, tail and front legs. The Anxitane has helped her -- she no longer looks like the poster child for mange. Most of her fur has grown in altho' she still has bad days - that will probably always be so.
Totally worth the purchase by Pooch from Philadelphia, PA12/05/2012
My pet has frequent urinary tract and bladder infections as well as calcium deposits. The vet finally said I think she is stressing over being in pain and uncomfortable, try this item. So, i tried it and after about 2 weeks i saw a difference in my pet. She wasn't moping around and looking sad, she was running around, chasing the cats and looked happy again. So, thank you and happy holidays!!!!! Licks and Barks
Really calmed an anxious dog down by sugarsma from Tucson, AZ07/09/2013
When Neili was delivered to our house as a foster, she was a shaking bundle of nerves with a very loud, very high pitched bark. Our rescue's behaviorist suggested Anxitane twice a day, along with not rewarding the undesirable barking. My Vet agreed to a trial. It is now fiv e weeks since we started and she has learned to be much calmer. In addition, her bark has normalized and she is a pleasure to be around. In another two weeks we will try to taper her off. Thank you for making her easy to live with. Foster failure has set in and she is now ours.
Been Helpful by BB10/27/2011
While my dog has not experienced a dramatic improvement there has been a noticeable improvement in her outdoor behavior with the product.
