Sedating a dog for grooming is also the same thing like to sedate him for the nail clipping stuff.
There are minor changes as here in such cases; you have to groom them using every furry part of their body.
You should hold his leg around his neck, so he just can’t move.
I hope I have helped you in some manner to solve your issue.
If an animal is suffering and medication would help reduce the suffering, we need to weigh the risks carefully.
What I have found with acepromazine is that the sedation is effective when a dog isn’t stressed.
I have a almost 8 yr old cockapoo, Abby She HATES to be groomed HATES it!!
I had been giving her Benadryl for awhile..seemed ok with it …but now it’s not having the calming effect on her as it used to and her grooming day is a nightmare!!
