What is Acepromazine?

Acepromazine is a phenothiazine tranquilizer that is used prior to anesthesia and surgery because of its sedative effects and its ability to prevent vomiting. It's also used as an aid in controlling excited animals during examinations, treatments, and grooming. Acepromazine is sold per tablet and requires a prescription from your veterinarian.

For:

Cats and Dogs

Benefits:

  • An effective tranquilizer
  • Controls overly excitable animals
  • Can prevent vomiting post surgery
  • Sold affordably per tablet

How does acepromazine work?

Acepromazine is classified as a phenothiazine neuroleptic, which means it modifies the chemicals in your pets brain to change their behavior. Its a tranquilizer that depresses the central nervous system. The mechanism of action is not exactly known, however, its thought to block receptors of dopamine in the brain, a chemical used for cell-to-cell communication.

Cautions:

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has liver disease, heart disease, seizure disorders or if the pet is pregnant or lactating. Also mention other CNS medications, such as Phenobarbital, that your pet may be taking.

Brand Name:

Aceproject (Vetus), Aceprotabs (Vetus), PromAce (Fort Dodge)

Generic Name:

acepromazine (ace PRO ma zeen)

What is the most important information I should know about acepromazine:

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. Acepromazine is available as 10 mg and 25 mg tablets. Each tablet is quarter scored. The usual dose for dogs and cats is 0.25-1 mg/lb. Acepromazine may color the urine pink. Occasionally, this medication may have an opposite effect causing stimulation, therefore this medication should not be used to treat aggression.

What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving acepromazine to my pet?

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has liver disease, heart disease, seizure disorders, or if the pet is pregnant or lactating. You should also mention other CNS (Central Nervous System) medications such as clomipramine, fluoxetine, and Reconcile or monoamine oxidase inhibitors such as Anipryl, Selegiline, or Preventic Collar that you are giving or using on your pet.

How should acepromazine be given?

Give acepromazine exactly as directed by your veterinarian. Acepromazine should be given 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to the procedure for the medication to take effect. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you.

What are the potential side effects of acepromazine?

Stop giving acepromazine and seek emergency veterinary medical care in the event of rare allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; hives). Other, less serious side effects that have been reported but may resolve with continued treatment. Continue to give acepromazine and notify your veterinarian if your pet show signs of sedation, depression, incoordination, low blood pressure, slower heart rate and breathing. Other side effects may also occur. Talk to your veterinarian about any side effect that seems unusual or bothersome to your pet.

What happens if I miss giving a dose of acepromazine?

Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.

What happens if I overdose my pet on acepromazine?

Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include excess drowsiness, slow heart rate and breathing, unsteady movement, unconsciousness, low blood pressure or seizures.

What should I avoid while giving acepromazine to my pet?

Do not give your pet epinephrine or CNS depressant medications such as Phenobarbital.

What other drugs will affect acepromazine?

Before giving acepromazine, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given phenytoin, antiarrhythmics such as quinidine and beta blockers such as propranolol. Antidiarrheal medications and antacids may reduce the effectiveness of acepromazine.

I have been given it for fireworks (i know it's side effects with noise) but it works for my dogs. How often can I give it? Once a day? either full or half tablet? since it's a 4 day holiday weekend and lots of fireworks around neighborhood

Asked by: marisa
If this medication requires multiple doses, they are typically done at 6-12 hour intervals. Do not redose more than every 6 hours. It is more effective to give this drug 45-60 minutes before your pet is expected to display any anxious behavior.

My Pomeranian has a collapsed trachea and was prescribed Acepromazine to calm him down prior to going to places that trigger his anxiety. Given that he has a collapsed trachea, is this dangerous? He struggles to breathe when he's anxious/nervous.

Asked by: Sbauts10
This medication should help calm your pet down and make him less anxious/nervous. Hopefully, this will prevent him from struggling to breath by preventing these trigger situations. However, this medication is a CNS depressent and one side effect is slowed breathing. Continue to give acepromazine and notify your veterinarian if your pet show signs of sedation, depression, incoordination, low blood pressure, slower heart rate and breathing. If you concerned about this medication, speak with your vet.

Asked by: Suzy
It is possible that this drug may still be in your dogs system after 36 hours;however, it is probably in a very low amount. After 16 hours, half of the drug is already eliminated, and after 32 hours 3/4 of the drug should be eliminated.

May I cut Acepromazine in half?

I give 10 mg. to my dog when I take him to get his nails cut becasue he hates his paws touched. Yesterday I tried one when I went out because he is terrifiied of thunderstorms and talked to Vet about giving to him when I am not here for severe thunderstorms, she said it was ok to do. Can I cut the 25 mg. in half for him, he is 25 lb. Shiba Inu and any more than that is too much for him. Thank you.

My dog is hyper sensitive to this drug . A lot of herding dogs can be. I can break the pill into many pin head size doses and it still knocks him completely out. So yes you can break it in half or into many doses. If it is for noise i recommend a drug called sileo. It inhibits just the noise without sedation
