    Hi. My 2 year old boxer mix was just diagnosed with anxiety. The vets want to medicate him with Prozac i was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a more natural solution

    There is a joke that all remedies started off as natural, the ones that worked became medicines and the rest became pot pourri.

    You could try things like skullcap and valerian but Prozac is a well tested and respected medication, why not go with that for a bit and see how he does?

    What things is he anxious over?

    Could he be helped with some careful training/desensitisation?
