Virbac Anxitane (L-Theanine) Medium & Large Dogs Chewable Tablets for dogs and cats promote relaxation in pets exhibiting nervousness, anxiety or responding to environmentally-induced stress. Anxitane Tablets are clinically proven to reduce clinical signs associated with fear and anxiety. Anxitane Tablets are Suntheanine, a pure and neurologically active L-Theanine in a chewable form.
Anxitane Tablets significantly reduce stress related reactions. As a nutraceutical, it is an attractive alternative to pharmaceuticals for first intention treatment. It is a safe choiceŚthere are no known side effects and does not cause drowsiness. There are no known interactions with other therapeutics.
Anxitane Tablets have excellent palatability which optimizes complianceŚclinical trials in the field showed a 94% acceptance rate in dogs and cats.
Anxitane Tablets are particularly useful for long-term use in anxious pets. Anxitane should be used for at least 60 days to ensure maximum results can be observed. If pet's condition worsens or does not improve, the pet should be re-evaluated by a veterinarian.

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.
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).

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.

While my dog has not experienced a dramatic improvement there has been a noticeable improvement in her outdoor behavior with the product.
