Our dog was given acepromazine 25 mg at 8:30 am Eastern

Our dog was given acepromazine 25 mg at 8:30 am Eastern Standard Time (ordered by her vet) prior to grooming as she gets growly and snappy with grooming. She is on Tramadol 50 mg bid which she had at the same time. The groomer said it never made a change til 3pm this afternoon. Now she is quite lethargic and not acting herself but she did eat while lying down. No vet hospital will answer my question "is this normal reaction". Lady is 11 year old Golden Retriever weighing 58 lbs. Should I take her to a hospital or just wait to see if it wears off? Is there potential danger?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help Lady. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lady?Customer: The vet is closed and short of taking her to an animal hospital I am just trying to find out if this would be considered typical for these meds in this dosage.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.

My labradoodle (63 lbs)just had a knee implant 10 days ago

My labradoodle (63 lbs)just had a knee implant 10 days ago and has now developed hives. I'm concerned he will develop a skin infection now that he's completed his antibiotics. Is it ok to give him 2 Benadryl and two acepromazine at the same time so he and the rest of the family can get some sleep?

My German Shepherd had surgery on Wednesday, it was a

My white German Shepherd had surgery on Wednesday, it was a neuter. He was fine at first but then on Friday he developed diarrhea and on Saturday it became Bloody. Today it is mostly blood and he is now throwing all his food up. Yesterday he was eating but today he is not. He has been on a boiled chicken and white rice diet for the past 2 days and refuses to eat it now. He can only drink a little water at a time or else he will promptly throw it up. I had called my vet and they told me to take him off of his Duramax pills for pain and inflammation, they also told me to feed him the boiled chicken and white rice. He has been taking Tramadol for pain and yesterday I gave him the sedative acepromazine because he was rambunctious and Hyper and I did not want him to strain anything because of the surgery. Today he is not hyper at all and looks to be in quite a bit of pain although refuses to whimper. The animal hospital that I take him to is closed today and I am not sure what to do please help.

Does Acepromazine cause a dry cough? My 13 lb peek a poo had

Hi! Does Acepromazine cause a dry cough? My 13 lb peek a poo had ACL surgery last Tuesday (may 31). I picked him up on Wed and he cried for over 24 hours (even on his pain meds). The vet prescribed .5 mg of Ace which worked great Thursday. I gave him .5 Sat and Saturday night he got a really bad cough. I took him to the er vet and they diagnoses Kennel cough. The suppressant worked great. Hadn't really coughed since, however, today he has been very anxious, legs itches because his bandage is off and he just cries so I have him .5 mg of Ace. He starting to cough a little. Im wondering if the cough is from the ACE?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Murphy and he's 12JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Murphy?Customer: I don't think so. I just want to make sure I'm not causing the issue by using ACE. If it's not the cause, can I assume it's still the Kennel cough and give him the cough suppressant?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.
