    Default Prozac

    My dog was recently put on Prozac. He's on phenobarbital and potassium bromide. They are anti-convulsion drugs for seizures. Any who, the neurologist swear his issues, which are fly snapping, are a behavioral issue and may be treated with an anxiety med. It seems to be working.. Crazy... Has anyone else who's dog fly bites, been told to try Prozac rather than seizure medication?

    Interesting Loki has full blown seizures so I am not very familiar with the random fly biting action. His seizures would cause him to foam at the mouth causing a lot snapping motions but I have never seen the snapping motions alone. I am curious to see a video as well. I know that may be a hard request once Loki made it a few weeks seizure free I deleted the videos from my phone as I didn't want the reminder.

    I know that if they determine it's a behavior issue....then fluoxetine (Prozac) is the drug of choice. Vegas is on phenol, Kbr and zonisamide. All seizure meds.

    Have you tried to upload it to Youtube? It's a whole lot easier to do it that way.
