          Comments about Acepromazine:

          15 year old cocker with anxiety issues. Got the 25 mg pill and give only half if I'm gone a short time and a full pill if I'm gone more than a few hours. Combine this with a 'thundercoat' and all is good. I came home after 8 hours to find my dog snoozing with NO accidents (of coursae I made sure before I left he 'did his business' fully).
          I use the pill sparingly and only in 'need to' situations. Great aid and source of peace of mind.

              I give one 10 mg pill to my 20 lb Westie one hour before we fly. He does excellent on flights, laying down in his carrier and remaining calm and quiet. He has flown approximately 8 times now and I've had no problems.

                my 7 month old bichon was inbred to the point where she has several problems relating to being inbred. one of them is hyperactivity, one is being very mean and biting constantly. this drug has helped her a lot, with some xanax added also.
