Hi - we're a rescue and have a dog that we need to give ace to in order to groom it. We gave 6 mg to her this afternoon (she's about 5-7 pounds) and the groomer ended up not doing her and can do her tomorrow. Is it okay to give her another dose tomokrrow am around 7:30?
Hi,

Welcome back to Just Answer. I'm Dr. Bruce and I've been a small animal veterinarian for over 12 years. Thank you for your question. Acepromazine is a drug that is very frequently given a coule times a day for days on end in dogs that are traveling or in stressful situations. To repeat a dose tomorrow should be ok. I would hold off on the dose if in the morning she is still very sedate from the previous one. But, more than likely the sedation shouldn't last over 12 hours.
