Made Noticable Difference in my Dog

By sophiemol

from Philadelphia, PA

About Me Long-Time Pet Owner

Pros

  • Easy to administer
  • Effective

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Aggression
    • Anxiety
    • Dogs

    I switched my dog from Clomicalm (due to cost increase) to Reconcile, and my vet prescribed this generic. Combined with behavior training, this made a considerable difference in my dog's anxiety and overall aggression. I resisted medicating my dog for a long time, but this has made such a difference I wish now I hadn't waited so long.
