Sedating pet

So, a pet owner should have some basic knowledge about the most commonly used and safe sedatives for dogs.

(For the purposes of seperation anxiety, dental care for a dog whose teeth are in good condition, but is too anxious to allow it's teeth and gums to be cleaned and scaled without being sedated), and, is there a sedative (not general anesthesia) you would avoid using completely on sensitive breeds & sight hounds?You're packed, have the health certificate and are ready to take that much needed vacation with your pet.You just have one more thing to decide: should you sedate your pet for the trip or not?I won't administer sedatives or dispense them for use in pets for grooming or teeth cleaning purposes because the effect is unreliable and unpredictable and I do not want anyone counting on them working and getting hurt.Sometimes, I will use a combination of a sedative like acetylpromazine and a narcotic pain reliever like oxymorphone or butophanol for use in combination with local anesthesia for minor surgical procedures, which seems to be a little more reliable combination.Anesthesia is defined as the loss of ability to feel pain. This involves injecting the medication into a specific place in the skin (or applying it onto an area of the skin) to induce temporary localized numbness, allowing the veterinarian to perform a brief procedure.However, the term anesthesia is more commonly used to refer to a state of deep sedation or unconsciousness during which a patient is unable to feel pain. The affected area can include the skin, underlying muscles, and nerves.Sedatives have also been used to reduce fear that may develop during air travel.It is currently recommended that sedatives be used to calm an extremely fearful pet, those prone to severe separation anxiety and overactive pets.You may think that if you were going to be stuck in a dark cool cargo area near a roaring airplane engine, you would want to be sedated.So it would be natural to assume your pet would prefer this as well.
