Buspirone Basics

Buspirone reduces anxiety and fear in dogs and cats. It also treats urine spraying in cats. It differs from benzodiazepines, another class of drugs often used to treat anxiety. Unlike benzodiazepines, buspirone does not have muscle relaxant effects, has little to no sedative effects, and does not affect GABA binding, which is important for Central Nervous System (CNS) function.

Buspirone requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

Buspirone Directions

Use as directed by your veterinarian, and follow all instructions printed on the prescription label. Complete the entire prescription unless instructed otherwise by your veterinarian. Dosage and duration of administration depend on the condition being treated and reaction to the medication.

Store tablets at room temperature protected from light and moisture.
