Acepromazine 64 65
Thanks goodness I have a very hyper dog that both knees had to have surgery. "Rupture anterior cruciate ligament with a torn medial meniscus". Before and after surgery he has to be in his crate for 24/7. Without Acepromazine not sure how he could cope with being in that crate. Does not get out of his crate until around August. Yet Acpromazine does not slow him down when people come over or he is excite, other than that thank goodness he is sleeping . No side effect for this guy. Can't wait until he is back running around and off all of these meds that he has been taking since Jan. 2011 06/23/2011
Great for flying I gave my 6 lb., 8 month old puppy Kaity 2.5 mg. (1/4 tab) of Acepromazine 20 minutes prior to her first airline flight. She slept on my lap throughout most of the flight and was calm during our layover. The flight attendants on Southwest were great, and the other passengers on our row fell in love with her. They couldn't believe a puppy could be so well behaved. She had no side effects from the medication and once the sedation wore off she was her old playful self. 06/13/2011
Product calmed her down. Lulu is a Lab/pit mix and is approx. 65-70 lbs. She got frightened of having her nails clipped and she won't even let us touch her nails. We gave her two pills and were able to trim her nails without any problems. She acted drunk for awhile but came out of it her normal active self. \ \ 06/18/2014
Great for surgery recovery My six-month 25lb Border Collie puppy was spayed a few days ago and I was told to prevent her from running or jumping for at least one week. I had no idea how on earth I would possibly manage this, as she has hours and hours of full-speed dog park energy every day. After research and talking with the vet I started with half of the lowest recommended dose. It worked like a charm for the first 48 hours, but then she started getting excited well before the six hour dose period was up. So I increased it from a quarter pill every six hours to a quarter pill every four hours. This worked great for a day, and then needed to up the dose to half a pill every six. It has been two days on half a pill and while she will get up and try to play if the opportunity is there, as long as I keep the room quiet and keep her away from distractions she is still content to sleep for most of the duration of the dose. Eventually I may need to up the dose again, but it looks like she'll be fully healed long before we get to the point where we need the maximum dose. Start low and slow, be patient and use this as an aid to a problem, not a cure-all. p.s. For large breeds, herding dogs, and sight hounds - do some research first! Maybe get your dog tested for the MDR1 gene. And bigger dogs have a higher chance of blood pressure dropping too low. 04/29/2014
Excellent product My dog Rose petal was a puppy mill dog for six years. She has been with me a year and has come a long way learning to be a dog. She becomes tramatized when I groom her. This product is a God send-thank you 04/08/2014

My dog weighs 25 lbs and I gave him 1and 1/2 10 Mg tablets and now he has diarrhea and he can't control his bowels.Should I be concerned
Answer:Diarrhea is not usually a common side effect of Acepromazine. Contact your veterinarian if the diarrhea hasn't resolved in 24 hours. Your pet may need to be checked.
Answer:Acepromazine is a prescription medicine FDA approved for veterinary use in dogs only; however it is a commonly accepted practice for veterinarians to use acepromazine in cats. Please speak to your doctor for any of your medication needs.
Answer:My dog is 80 lbs. I only give her 25 mg . The affects last about 8 hours.
50 mg. would knock her out, I would be afraid to give her that much.
Which and how much would I give to my mom's 17 lb. poodle for a 12 hour car trip?
Answer:Under "How to Use" is this direction: give 0.25-1.0 mg per pound of body weight. So, multiply 17 times 0.25 mg for minimum dose., which is 4.25 mg. Cut a 10 mg in half. If not enough, work up the dosage until you max out at 17 mg.
Answer:The difference is in the strengths. The dosing recommendations for Acepromazine in both cats and dogs are to give 0.25?1 mg per pound of pet?s body weight by mouth. Acepromazine Should be given 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to the desired effect. As Acepromazine is a prescription item, please consult with your veterarian for the dose for your 17 pound poodle.
