Clomipramine Is A Tricyclic Antidepressant That Can Be Used To Treat Separation Anxiety In Dogs And Obsessive Compulsive Disorders In Cats

Clomipramine is a tricyclic antidepressant (TCA). Its chemical structure is composed of three rings. TCAs work in the brain by blocking the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine. Clomiprimine is the most selective TCA we know of. It was one of the very first medications approved by the Federal Drug Administration for the treatment of separation anxiety in dogs. It has shown effectiveness in the prevention of compulsive disorders (such as tail chasing) in dogs and even urine spraying in cats. Clomeripramines can be a handy medication to help your dog with their behavioral habits. If you think your dog might benefit from being on it, talk to your doctor. It should not be used in dogs that have recently taken an MAOI inhibitor such as selegiline. . . .
