What is Buspirone?

Buspirone reduces anxiety and fear in dogs and cats. It also treats urine spraying in cats. It differs from benzodiazepines, another class of drugs often used to treat anxiety. Unlike benzodiazepines, buspirone does not have muscle relaxant effects, has little to no sedative effects, and does not affect GABA binding, which is important for Central Nervous System (CNS) function.
