    I have a kitty that is stressing out (multiple cat household) and literally chewing her fur off. Had her on prescription med and did nothing. I had used Anxitane S before and had be anxiously awaiting for the manufacture backorder to be over with. And YAY! They're back in stock!! She has been on them for 1 week and already seen a HUGE difference! 1/2 tablet daily and she LOVES the taste of these! I even started another kitty on it and she LOVES the taste as well. I've had to put them in a plastic medicine bottle to keep them from chewing the package. Yes, that's how bad they wanted these. lol It's a little pricey but so worth it!! Thank you Entirely Pets for getting these in!
    • They work! Cats love the flavor!
    • Little pricey

    My cat, Kirby, is a very nervous cat who had a terrible start to life. He's loving and we love him back, but his overall behavior towards life is one of fear and mistrust. Anxitane is perfect. It hasn't turned Kirby into a calm, mellow creature, but it has taken the edge off his skittishness without making him sluggish or altering his personality. My only problem with Anxitane is that it is now so hard to get and I'm almost out of it. I hope the supply will increase soon and next time I'll order more!

    Our dog, a 5 yrs old Shi Tzu was petrified of thunder and also would bark at night, making it impossible for us to sleep. After 3 weeks of this, her behavior changed for the better.

    Now I can travel with my Bengal Cat!
    July 4, 2015
    My elderly Bengal Cat became almost hysterical on our frequent car trips, with extremely LOUD and constant vocalizations. This created a lot of anxiety & frustration for the human passengers. With Virbac Anxitane S, his anxiety is greatly reduced and he actually sleeps for a good portion of the trips. This is a great product!

    My one cat had anxiety issues which have been apparently alleviated by Anxitane use, though I keep Feliway diffusers in the problem area (p'ing on any rug in the dining room, but one rug safe for over a week after long use of Anxitane and Feliway).
    Timely delivery of product which was appreciated.

    Aimee is more calm; she is much less fearful of a person approaching her. Aimee seems to enjoy being petted and having loving attention paid to her.

    Highly recommend for a cat or dog who for whatever reason has reason to feel stressed. The human supplement also works for humans! Best purchase ever! Highly recommend for odd behavior , cats suffering with FLUTD, or just the "psychotic" cat.

    Our Havanese dog "Zinger" is high energy and what our trainer says is "a reactive" canine. Virbac Anxitane S has met our expectations and Zinger's overall demeanor is definitely calmer.

    I was skeptical
    February 11, 2015
    I started 1/2 tab AM and PM for our 24# sheltie. His anxiety and nervousness was affecting our other 3 with bad habits. 1/2 tab saw no improvement in his symptoms. We increased to 1 tab in AM and 1/2 tab in PM. No noticeable improvement. Again we upped to 1 tab AM and 1 tab PM.....and took about 3 days on the full tablets twice daily to see result s and now he is one of the better behaved dogs. It does not dope up my dog nor does it interfer with his playing activities. He is just as lovable but doesn't freak out with company, loud noises etc. I absolutely feel that this has given him a more comfortable day and less stress. All this occured over the course of about 6-8 weeks. I am reordering with pleasure!! Highly rec. for your pets. Just need to find the right dosage.

    Works well; versatile

    Our (behaviorist) veterinarian recommended this for one of our two cats, to replace a no-longer-available prescription medication the cat took because of prior aggression against her feline housemate. So far, Anxitane seems to work at least as well as the prescription to relax her and reduce the incidence of friction between the cats. This is a completely unscientific observation, but since being fully transitioned to Anxitane, she seems more affectionate, playful, and interactive toward her humans, more physically active, and with almost kittenish mannerisms at times (she's 8 or 9 years old). It's possible the relaxation Anxitane promotes has something to do with her behavior, and in any case all changes since going on Anxitane have been positive.

    We have also given Anxitane to the housemate cat at times to reduce acute anxiety after a recent severe basement flood disrupted the cats' world significantly. Anxitane helped both cats relax and get through the worst of the flood recovery period.

    Great Stress Reducer!

    This is a great alternative to prescription medication for some cats. It calms them and helps some cats that stress easily. We used it on one of our shelter cats who was pulling her hair out because she was hyper. I would definitely recommend that you try it for at least 30 days. It takes a bit of time to take effect.

    Takes the edge off
    August 5, 2014
    I have 2 cats that have hierarchy issues so they are constantly at odds with each other. After giving them Anxitane I've noticed they aren't fighting as much and they seem a bit less edgy when they're together. It takes a few days for it to start working and the effects are subtle so you need to be attuned to your cats behavior to notice the difference.

    Worked for us

    I was one of the lucky customers that this really paid off for. I have a pomeranian/papillon that can be very neurotic and nervous. In the evenings especially, he will bark until someone goes to sit with him in the living room. He gets nervous at the intense music of movies or tv shows, he barks at strangers. Sometimes he just wants alone time away from our other pets.
    After one or two uses we noticed a difference. We only needed to use these pills (one a day) for about a week and a half. Now we only use them occasionally.

    Best Purchase Ever!!!
    May 2, 2014
    I can not do without these in my household! These are wonderful during the times my kitties are stressed! I have one that likes to pick on the older kitties and this works fantastic! I only use it when kitties act up. It's safe to use. Plus kitty loves the taste and chews them right up. Keep package out of reach from kitties though! I've had one that likes the taste so much, she got the package and ran off with them! I have even recommended them to my friend for her kitty.

    Not perfect, but a lot better
    March 31, 2014
    We rescued a chihuahua/JRT mix a few months ago. He started showing signs of anxiety about a month after we got him and we were at our wit's end because he'd bark whenever we'd leave our place. We tried DAP diffusers and thundershirts, but nothing worked. We were trying to avoid putting him on medication, so this was a last resort. Now that he's been taking this for a few weeks he has improved greatly. He still barks when we leave, but he stops a lot sooner than he used to. So there's been a lot of improvement, but there's still room for him to get better. Hopefully as he stays on it longer, he'll keep getting better! You won't see improvement right away, but don't get discouraged. Keep at it!

    My cats get this every time they are going to the vets office, there is a stressful even such as maintenance in the house, or if they are chronically stressy. Has made a HUGE difference in one cat especially who used to hide all the time; now she even asks perfect strangers to pet her.

    Virbac Anxitane S
    October 30, 2013
    Use this for my cat when events cause stress and sometimes when can tell he is bit on edge. Give one/half chewable tab and really helps. Last time gave him half tab about two hours before Vet visit. He was sooo good - very laid back. Best visit ever! Vet commented on great behavior.

    Seems to just take the edge off - doesn't make sleepy - just a bit more relaxed. Never seen side effects and have been using for several years now.

    I run an animal shelter. Dogs are sometimes under a lot of stress when they come in and
    sometimes a little longer.Virbac Anxitane helps
    these dogs to relax and come around and adjust to different surroundings. Our trainer/behaviorist suggested it and it works !!

    I love this stuff. It works. I use it for rescue dogs to help them relax and understand that they are safe and secure. There is no hangover or sedation, just a happy, relaxed dog who understands all is well and they can be themselves.

    My Vet recommended this product for my cat, Abbie as she gets nervous when I go on a long trip and she is left behind with the Pet Sitter. Worked great! The pet sitter said Abbie was
    much more receptive to her during those 10 days. Abbie has asthma too and it has helped with that also!

    Helped calm my dog

    Recently adopted a rescue dog ... working with trainer who suggested Anxitane. It really is helping calm him and keep him on an "even keel" as he adjusts to his new life and training.

    The Best of Care

    I have given our miniature Schnauzer Virbac's Anxitane S for separation anxiety, fear of thunderstorms, and just to help her get through a doctor's exam without getting so upset. The medication took a few days before I could see a difference in her "attitude". The change is enough that she gets her 1/2 tab each morning, and the other 1/2 tab at night. We do not intend to stop the medication since she has this problem, and we need to deal with it --for her comfort, and our peace of mind.

    Anxitane is great for an Anxious/Aggressive Dog
    February 21, 2013
    This has made a huge difference with our aggressive/reactive, down-right mean, rescued dog. He was on this less than 2 weeks when we noticed, he smiled a lot more and snarled and growled a lot less! We have two rescues, the other one does not have these issues but we put them both on it. No side effects in either dog. However, it only changed the behavior of the scared/aggressive dog. He is much calmer and listens much better now! We tried Remedy Relief and a Calming Aid with no results prior to this.

    from Norwalk, Ca. asked:
    February 15, 2015
    We recently had a break-in to our house and it terrorized and tramatized our small dog. She now snarls, growls and snaps at us. Will Anxitane S help her.?
    1 Answer
    I'm sorry to hear about that. Anxitane S should help keep her calm and reduce her stress-induced reactions, such as growling and snarling. If you still have trouble keeping her calm, I also recommend Bonies Calming Treats and DAP Adaptil products.
