Fluoxetine is the generic version of Prozac that is safe for dogs and cats suffering from depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive behaviors, and panic disorders.
Fluoxetine is comprised of an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor). SSRIs block reuptake, or reabsorption of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. Changing this balance helps brain cells send and receive chemical messages. This often results in improved mood.
It is only available with a prescription from your veterinarian.
Fluxoetine is the Generic Alternative to Prozac.
