Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. Can you let me know what your question is please? I read that she has been prescribed sedatives for nail trims.

I'm just nervous the instructions say 2 pills of alprazolam and 2 pills of the acepromazine an hour before, it just seems like alot im not sure what to expect after and how long it will last

Have you tried one or the other separately to see if that is enough sedation before giving them together?
