    I was wondering if anyone has used Prozac in dogs less than 12 months old?  I usually like to wait until they have reached adulthood before starting on a long acting anti-anxiety medication.  But I have a case where I  think this puppy would benefit.  I was curious if anyone has encountered any reasons not to do this?

    Although I hate to speak for others, I’ve heard DACVBs say that young age is not a reason to avoid anxiolytics if needed. The behavior may only get worse if not taken care of now.
