Fluoxetine Compound Basics

Fluoxetine Compound is an antidepressant used in cats and dogs for behavior modification. It is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) used to treat behaviors in animals such as separation anxiety, canine aggression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, and itching. This medication increases serotonin levels in the brain.

Fluoxetine compound requires a prescription from your veterinarian. It is available in a capsule and a tablet.
