This medication has proven effective for calming our two Rotties when given prior to holiday fireworks, during wicked T-storms if they last for a long time and are causing extreme anxiety, etc. It isn't something we use on a regular basis, but when the need arises, it's great to have this on hand so our dogs are more comfortable.
This is a must have if your dog is like mine. Mine freaks out when the kids have a birthday party or more than 3 people are in our house, and he also freaks when we got to the groomers. Just one fixes everything without making him seem like he's in a coma.
Works well, love that the dose is so adjustable.
My 60 lb. lab is hypersensitive to sensory stimulus of any kind. Sight, sound, smell, touch...a very sensitive nervous system that seems always on hyper-alert. I think she would make an incredible working dog - search and rescue or being by a hunter/rancher/farmer's side 12 hours a day in the field. Sadly, her life requires that she "lay about" a chunk of every day (like most dogs!). Although she gets at least 2 hours of running, jumping, smelling, retrieving activity daily, and short play and training times in between, I have used Acepromazine to help her manage the times when she is hyper-aroused but I am not able to give her enough physical activity to tire her out (along with lots of behavioral training and touch therapy to calm her energy system). I really like that this medication is manufactured so that a 25 mg tablet can be broken into as many as 4 pieces. This way I can give her only enough to take the edge off and help her to calm given the situation. I work from home most of the time, but if I have to be gone for several hours during the day or evening, I give her more - a half tablet (she also has some separation anxiety), a quarter tablet at times when I am around but she is having trouble calming. I use it a few times per week, but because I can lower the dose whenever possible, I worry much less about her becoming dependent or over-medicating. I also use a supplement called L-theanine (with her vet's blessing). The brand I have found most effective is made by Enzymatic Therapy and is made with Suntheanine L-theanine (Amazon, Swanson). It is an amino acid that calms the brain/nervous system by promoting more alpha wave activity.
