We are on a long trip. My 17lb shih tzu is barking and nervous at the hotel so I gave him 5mg acepromazine at 1:00 am. I just remembered that I gave him 16mg cerenia at 9:30am (15.5 hrs earlier). Is this okay?

I am a registered nurse, but I am also a registered

Hello, my name is***** am a registered nurse, but I am also a registered veterinary technician and worked for 9 years before I switched to human nursing. My dog Casey is a 21 lb (10kg) cockapoo/westie who is 14 years old. He has compression between his T 11-12 which was viewed as chronic when his rads were sent to a radiologist in mid June 2016. Casey was in great shape even upto 2 months ago, we would hike for 7km at least 3 times a week without any issues. However, he's declined seemingly rapidly and we walked on flat ground for 5km yesterday and he's been limping and noticeably sore in his back.I will take him into my vet tomorrow, but I'd like to know if I can give him something for pain. He's on extensive list of medications and I'd like to know if they are contraindicated with Butorphanol?1. Atopica 50mg once daily (for allergies, used for approx 10 years)2. Clomipramine 25mg once daily (for anxiety, used for approx 6 years)3. Vanectyl P 1/2 tab once daily (for allergies, used for approx 2 years)4. Gabapentin 75mg twice daily (for back pain, used for 4 weeks- dose increased last week from from 50mg to 75mg)I have Butorphanol 1mg tablets that I was prescribed for sedation while travelling in the car, but I never used it. He was sedated with Amytryptaline 10mg and Acepromazine 2.5mg and ended up having 3 seizures, which were triggered by the vibrations on the highway, this happened June 6th 2016. He has no other history of seizures and had been sedated with those meds multiple times for travelling over the past 5 years or more without incident. He wasn't on the Gabepentin when prescribed the Butorphanol and I don't know if they are contraindicated? He is unable to take any NSAIDS cause he had significant intestinal bleeding after being on Metacam approx 10 years ago. I realize that Butorphanol is not the best for pain relief, but I'd try anything to help him at this point. He did improve a little overnight, but knowing that I have something that could make him more comfortable, I'd like to use it if it's safe. I also, realize that he would be slightly sedated, but I'd rather he be comfortable. His dose for Butorphanol for travel was 2.5mg, but could be increased to 5mg q12h as needed, I have a total of 15 tablets of 1mg Butorphanol. I'd like to know if it's safe to give, and if you have any other dose recommendations?

My dog is 12 1/2years old. Lhasa Apso. He has always been

My dog is 12 1/2years old. Lhasa Apso. He has always been very difficult with the groomer. He is totally stressed, he is actually vicious at times. He bit me once some years ago. Sadly, he must be groomed.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?Customer: I was using Acepromazine and it worked a few times, last time it hardly seemed to affect him. His name is Toby. I got Trazodone to try to lesson his stress factor, the other doesnt' address that, but could I combine the two. He weighs 20-21 pounds.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Toby?Customer: He is showing his age, kind of loopy sometimes, paces a lot during the day and has gotten very clingy. He is just at my feet every minute. He's in basic good health, no organ problems and such.

I was speaking to a veterinarian assistant regarding my dog

I was speaking to a veterinarian assistant regarding my dog who needs her toenails trimmed and is too scared to let us trim them. I was asking if giving her diazepam would be possible to help calm her to allow us to trim them. This dog is afraid of everything, we pet her but that is about all when it comes to wiping her feet, she won't let us get near them. She is 11 years old and has been from time to time limping on her hind leg. The toe nails are extremely long and turning to the side. We have taken her in the past to have her toenails trimmed by the vet, the last time it took 5 people including us and the vet to cut them.

Gave my 84 lb Bernese Mountain Dog 1 and ½ tablets (25 mg

Gave my 84 lb Bernese Mountain Dog 1 and ½ tablets (25 mg tablet) of acepromazine about 2 p.m. Eastern for thunderstorm anxiety, prescribed by local vet. I didn't realize it had such side effects. She seemed fine, but just sleepy about 6 p.m. Has since eaten a regular meal, but has now almost passed out. Is wobbly when she tries to get up. I have read for other comments on the same subject, but would like to know if Bernese Mountain Dogs are particularly likely to have side effects like some other breeds?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: SadieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sadie?Customer: She had TPLO surgery for ccl repair about 5 weeks ago. Is critical that she not slip or fall. We are monitoring her movements carefully if she tries to get up.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
