My dog recently fractured her toe. Our vet has it bandaged

My dog recently fractured her toe. Our vet has it bandaged with a splint and prescribed rimadyl for the swelling in the toe, tramadol for pain even though I don't believe she is in much if any, and acepromazine to basically knock her out to keep her off the toe. I did some research on ace and found several sources that say to never give it to a large dog because large dogs already have a slower heart rate and slow even more with ace so it's not very safe. It also said that a much safer alternative would be something like Benadryl. Would you prescribe a 120 pound mastiff acepromazine? The vet also mentioned maybe giving her 200 mg of the tramadol instead of the ace. I kinda question the knowledge of this vet which is why I'm asking for another opinion

I have a 60 lb labrador mix who vomits and has loose bowels

HiI have a 60 lb labrador mix who vomits and has loose bowels every time she is in a car. Sometimes it doesn't happen right away but any trip to vet or groomers is a nightmare for her (and not much fun for me either). She will be 13 years soon but is active and in good health. Is it safe to give her Cerenia as a one time treatment for the very rare times she travels in car?

My dog's vet prescribed my Shiloh Shepherd acepromazine

My dog's vet prescribed my Shiloh Shepherd acepromazine 25mg/tablet. She said to give her 1.5 tablets at night to keep her calm. Nala is 8.5 months old @ 86#. This is her first cycle, & it has given her many restless nights. The cycle started on the 6th. I've been reluctant to give Nala sedation but did last night (early morning) at 2:00am. I gave her one 25mg tablet. Now, I'm sick to my stomach with worry & my husband is furious with me because I gave it to her. My girl is tripping on her own feet, has slightly urinated on herself, her respirations are averaging 12/minute & heart rate is appx 90/bpm. Her nose, inside of ears & paws are warm & nose is also dry. Tips of her ears are cool & not as pink as usual. Her gums are mostly naturally dark but the lighter areas are still pink for now as well as her tongue. She has no interest in water. She feels the need to follow me wherever I go so now I'm planted on the floor with her until I can call my vet in the morning. What can I do to get this drug out of her system? How long does it remain? I'm so thankful I didn't give her 1.5 tablets as prescribed, but I'm still afraid of the reaction the 25mg has given her. Are there any signs that I can watch for to tell me that she's slipping away from me...because that's what's making me sick. I hope I didn't just kill my baby dog. She won't be getting another pill from me! I'd rather just have restless nights with her. I'll find another way to calm her down should she get out of this stupor! If she comes out of this okay, what can I do for her to bring her state of mind back to normal...eating, activity level?? I really hate myself for listening to the vet...no offense to you. I know animals can react differently to medications just like humans. I just want to be sure she's going to be okay. 😔
