    No.

    First: recognize that catnip has the same effect on several feline species. So: it's not cat-specific, but more like feline-specific (and: as far as we know).

    About 1/3 of cats are "immune" to catnip.

    There are several other plants that cause cats to act similarly, including often being effective with catnip-immune cats. Examples: valerian, silver vine.

    Some things that you might consider "animal-specific drugs"

    Locoweed (in general affects horses and cattle, livestock apparently like the flavor, preferring locoweed to several alternatives, but over-indulging causes a sort of poisonous effect called "locoism", one of the symptoms of which is abnormal behavior)

    Some animals (including dogs and cats) have been affected by toad secretions (after licking a toad), and in some documented cases these animals seek out toads to repeat the experience.
