Has Your Dog’s Behavior
Changed Recently?

It could be separation anxiety

You’re getting complaints from the neighbors about his barking. He jumps on you when you walk through the door. You’re cleaning up messes after a long day of work. Your new couch is in shreds. Your front door has been clawed to splinters.

If this sounds like your dog, he or she might be suffering from a medical condition called canine separation anxiety. When dogs become upset by their owners' absence, the stress can lead to abnormal behaviors. In fact, up to 17% of dogs in the U.S. may be affected by separation anxiety — and many of them go undiagnosed.1 But there's hope.

Developed for dogs by Elanco, Reconcile® (fluoxetine hydrochloride) is FDA-approved and available from your veterinarian. Reconcile is indicated for the treatment of canine separation anxiety in conjunction with a behavior modification plan. With help from your veterinarian, you can restore your relationship with your dog.

Complete the Separation Anxiety Questionnaire to help you recognize the signs of Canine Separation Anxiety. Visit with your veterinarian to determine if separation anxiety might be the cause of your dog's problematic behavior. The most important thing to remember is that your dog may be suffering from a treatable condition.
