HELP!!!! fluoxetine/reconcile/prozac for cats
Has anyone had success using this med to stop a cat from spraying/urinating in your home? The stray we found a few months back has been peeing in our home as well as his litterbox.
He had 2 full physicals, 2 urine checks and a full blood panel- kidney,thyroid,diabetes,crystals,UTI, etc..... Hundreds of dollars later ( for a found stray I might add- my hubby is going to kill me) nothing physical has been found. If it matters, the poor thing has been declawed front and back, and I have another cat (indoor only male)at home. He was urinating in my daughters rooms- the only rooms with carpet, and spraying on the walls nears his litterbox as well as going in it. I have treated the carpets with the peroxide/baking soda/dish soap combo as well as Natures Miracle and banished him from those rooms. His litterboxes (3 of them) are in the guestroom which has a laminate floor. He is now urinating is the litterboxes as well as on the floors. He has never pooped out of the box.
Yesterday my vet had me start him on 2.5 mg of Fluoxetine/prozac 1x daily. He said he has had success with it for behavioral urination problems.
PLEASE share any thoughts-personnal or professional-thanks and sorry so long.
