Hey I was just curious if it is okay to give a dog Temazepam (aka Restoril)? I know vets use valium and sometimes xanax on dogs and I have given him both xanax and valium with no complications.. So does anyone know if it is okay to give a dog Temazepam? ( I know the right dosages and everything, I am not some stupid kid trying to get his dog high) This is strictly for his pain/anxiety when he's shaking him pain due to kidney stones and starts crying (whimpering), and I only give him 0.25-0.5mgs of alprazolam to help him relax and get a good sleep... Also It's not like I am giving him a benzo everyday, its like maybe once every 2 months and I only give it to him when hes not doing very well..... I should of named this "Xanax for my dog?"
(I only gave him temazepam one time at 10mg dosage)
Also I found this on a website so I know vets do prescribe xanax to dogs:
Using Xanax for Dogs With Anxiety Disorders <<---link to info about dogs and Xanax.
"The typical Xanax dosage for dogs is 0.01 to 0.05 mg per pound, administered orally every 12 hours."
PS - Oh and by the way does anyone know of anything you can give to dogs to help their stomachs/colons? Cause my dog (Mr. Biggle Puff) get tummy aches every once in awhile but I don't know what to give him.... the only think I can think of is maybe Benadryl? If i had promethazine I wonder if that would work? any help would be appreciated.
