Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!You are absolutely correct, acepromazine is intended to sedate but does little for anxiety and alprazolam is typically the medication I use for this purpose. My second option if this is ineffective is trazadone which can also be used for anxiety. The hope is to calm the nerves with little to no sedation so that you can redirect the energy in a positive way and work on behavior modification with a trainer or behavioralistCLICK HERE for one article that discusses the options for youI hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today!
