Sedating dog acepromazine
They like to pay with my 18 mos grandson and like to play ball with me. The medication that I use the most often for sedation for travel is something called Acepromazine (also known as acevet or atravaet).
My question is: Are there any safe OTC sedatives for cats? I asked my vet for a sedative and he told he that I had to come back. I believe my Vet is a good professional, but I simply cannot afford any more medical care for them.
Common Valium side effects include respiratory problems, loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea.
Contact a vet if your dog develops any of these and stop the medication.
Vets also utilize this tranquilizing muscle-relaxant for symptoms of separation anxiety.
Otherwise, be cautious about administering Valium to a pet dog.
In these cases, a sedative or general anesthetic is typically needed in conjunction with a local anesthetic. Lidocaine should be used with caution in animals with certain heart conditions or liver disease.
