Tell me exactly which medications she is taking. Do you mean acepromazine? Please get the bottles and tell me what the labels say the name and mg dose are for each.

She is not in any pain. Just whinning for attention. Its called alprozo
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

OK, alprazolam. That is an anti-anxiety medication.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Is that the only medication she is taking?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She is driving me crazy. She was fine until i got her spayed
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
maybe she is afraid of me leaving her again ?
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

I see. I understand that you don't think she is painful, but her behavior change is likely due to discomfort. Spaying is major, open abdominal surgery.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Does she have a history of any liver or kidney problems?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The dr. look and touched it . And she wasnt in pain
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

I am a strong proponent of pain control. It seems we aren't going to see eye to eye here. I'm going to opt out so another expert can help you.

Hello ?
Expert:  Doc Sara replied 1 year ago.

Hi there, I'm Dr. Sara. I'm a licensed veterinarian who works exclusively with dogs and cats.

A spay is a major abdominal surgery that has the potential to cause quite a lot of pain. Pain in dogs manifests as panting, pacing, whining, and an inability to settle. Providing pain medication after such a surgery is considered the basic standard of care. I would contact your vet again for appropriate pain control for her. Have you given the alprazolam lately? You say she is driving you crazy - what is she doing?
