Sirwhiskey Posted June 3, 2013 Report Share Posted June 3, 2013 I found some old postings that suggested some people on this forum have used prozac with their BC. I was hoping to hear some stories about its effectiveness - how long until you saw results? How good were the results? Any details would be great. We have been working with a very fear aggressive BC puppy who is turning 6 months. He has been fear aggressive since we got him at 9 weeks. We have seen vets and 2 different trainers and done board and train to work on his fear aggression. The vet just put him on a low dose of Prozac and we are continuing with a very intense behavior modification program. We have seen some progress (without the prozac, just from the BMP) as he doesn't growl at strangers walking by much now. He still cannot be pet by anyone outside the family though and he is still dog reactive unless he has had time to build trust with the dog (he did fine with the trainers pack of dogs at board and train). We are hoping that the Prozac will lower some of his anxiety and therefore increase our ability to get him to relax as we continue our behavior modification program. He has only taken 3 doses so far and I know it can take a while to start working but I was wondering if anyone started to see any small improvements after just 1 week or if we will need to wait many weeks? Has anyone used Prozac with BMP to help with fear/anxiety/aggression and what were your results? I would also ask that people who feel a dog should not be placed on meds to leave that conversation alone, our pup's situation is so severe that we need to do everything we can or he might need to be euthanized so we are making what we feel are choices in his best interest based on consultations with professionals who know our dog and his situation. Thanks for understanding. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
