Pilot Study on the Efficacy and Safety of Long-Term Oral Imepitoin Treatment for Control of (Thunder)Storm-Associated Noise Phobia/Noise Aversion in Dogs Using an Individualized-Dose Titration Approach

ANIMALS, 14(4).

By: A. Munoz Amezcua n, J. Jones n, E. Griffith n & M. Gruen n

author keywords: imepitoin; storm; anxiety; anxiolytic; antiepileptic; noise; phobia; clinical trial
TL;DR: Imepitoin given during storm season at doses ranging from 10 to 30 mg/kg PO BID reduced clinical signs of fear and anxiety during storms for the dogs in this study, which supports the use of this medication at an individually titrated dose. (via Semantic Scholar)
