CriticalCareVet :

Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

CriticalCareVet :

What is the reason you are looking to give this medication?

CriticalCareVet :

Is your dog on any other medications?

Customer:

She was adopted by a friend, really scared of humans and now my friend doesn't want her so I want to take her to my home but no one can catch her. She will come to me for food as I feed her often.

Customer:

She is not on any other medications.

CriticalCareVet :

Alprazolam / xanax is a medication that can be considered for anxiety in dogs.
