~~~DANGERS OF ACEPROMAZINE~~~
Don't allow your vet to use ACEPROMAZINE on
This drug "ACEPROMAZINE" is used commonly
by most veterinarian hospitals and clinics for a pre-anesthetic during
surgery as well as the most popular prescribed drug for car travel for
dogs as well as cats. I assure you that some hospitals won't give
it a second thought to admisister this drug to your Boxer during a procedure
and freely prescribe it to you when you request something for your Boxer
for your lengthy Sunday drive or for your long needed vacation. Your
Boxer may suffer a severe allergic reaction to this drug. This reaction
could include arrhythmia of the heart and can also cause severe lowering
of blood pressure as well as respiratory arrest. Please remember
that a lot of veterinarian hospitals do not have attendants that stay and
supervise your animals throughout the night. There are no technicians,
no doctors, your Boxer is all alone...... NOBODY to find a distressed animal
in the wee hours of the night.
There is NOBODY there to monitor emergency
situations, and basically the hospital is oblivious to anything until they
come into work the following morning. Don't put the welfare, the
LIFE of your Boxer at risk because of your lack of knowledge and the lack
of concern/knowlege by this licensed veterinarian. Speak up for your
MOST TRUSTED FRIEND!!!!
I am offering you this information due
to our loss.....
We were totally in the dark about this medicine
until the loss of our beautiful girl Jazmine. On July 7th, 2001,
we took our 2 beautiful girls to the vet to have their ears cropped.
Later that day, we received a call from the vet telling us that he had
lost Jazmine. At first I thought that she might have escaped from
the clinic.. then he broke the bad news to me.... Laurie, (He said) We
lost Jazmine... I'm not sure what happened. We did her ear surgery
(crop) and put her in the recovery room so we could start on her sister
(Sassy) and when the vet tech went to check on her, she was dead.......
I asked him how Sassy was doing and he said
that she appears to be fine..We drove like a couple of mad men to the vet.
I still couldn't believe what he had told me. When we arrived he
met us at the door and kept telling us he was sorry and she must have had
a bad heart of something... He handed me my beautiful baby that only hours
before had been romping and playing with our children. She was gone!!!
I have never felt so much grief and guilt...If only I hadn't had her ears
done!!! We drove home that day with our 2 girls and laid Jazmine to rest.
If only we had known..... Please remember the name of this drug..
Learn from our mistakes... There are
other drugs out there..
Had she not had this drug she would be with
All you have to do is ask your vet to
place on your Boxer's chart
