My dog is old and needs a hair cut I have tried everything! Every groomer around refuses to touch her! I need to do something!
Hello morganKrobbins. You might ask your vet to give your dog Acepromazine Maleate. ACE for short. (they come in pills and tablets). And are used to sedate tranquiliz a dog. We use it on one of ours, same reason, to be taken when she goes to the groomer. Given a half hour before her appoinment and shes quiet, sedated. It takes her most of the day to have the effects of ACE to disappear. ACE is available only through a perscription from your vet. Regards,pledge
Oooh..I definitely wouldn't give your dog nyquil. There are too many different meds in it, so I'm not sure that would be safe. I'd talk to the vet and see if Benadryl would be ok. My dog has severe noise anxiety and her vet actually prescribed xanax for her. It works really well to calm her down, but not knock her out. Definitely talk to the vet before you give your dog anything.
