I took my dog to the vet Thursday because he would not lay
Hi. I took my dog to the vet Thursday because he would not lay down. He had his head on my bed and stood there trembling for 3 hours. The vet has diagnosed arthritis and dementia. He prescribed gabapentin 300 mg 3 times a day, Carprofen 100 mg, and tramadol 50mg. All are prn. I have given him all three. We are also going on vacation and my vet gave me acepromazine for the car ride. My dog weighs 54 pounds. Right now he is trembling and will not lay down. Should I give him a 10 mg acepromazine to help him lay down and go to sleep? My vet said that it could be used for sleep. I'm concerned because he will not lay down and I have given him all the other meds. Please help.

My 5lb chihuahua got out of our yard and into the neighbors,
my 5lb chihuahua got out of our yard and into the neighbors, where they took her in until I got home from work. Well, about 14 months ago the same incident happened and when I picked up my dog, she was acting jittery and kept moving her head back and forth. I took her to the emergency vet and she was tested positive for meth and they treated and released her. Now Im not making acusations however my dog is acting in the same manner as she did last year, and I'm not trying to cast blame but I went out and purchased a drug test and INDEED she is positive for Meth!!! The last incident I was given some medication, which I dont have and frankly dont remember what it was that calmed her down. Any suggestions?
