What is it used for? What are the Side Effects?


Acepromazine is used by veterinarians as a tranquilizer. You should not use it in any animas that have liver disease, heart diseases, low blood volume, seizure disorders, and pregnant. Should not be used to treat agression. Some side effects of acepromazine are sedation, depression, incoordination, sower heart rate, blood pressure and breathing. It may also cause agression. Some symptoms of overdose are excessive drowsiness, slow hear rate, slow breathing, unsteady movement, unconsciousness, seizures and low blood pressure.

History of Acepromazine


In the 1950s acepromazine was used in humans but is now barely used. When it was used in humans it was used as a sedative and to stop nausea and vomiting. After the 1960s they started using it in animals for the same reasons as humans. After twenty years of using it in some kinds of herding dogs scientists still can't understand a genetic mutation that causes a normal dose of Acepromazine to turn toxic and kill the dog.
