One of our 8 month pups is terrible. Trazadone has no effect at all. I muzzle her and hold her while we do the exam behind the vet and she nervous pees the whole time... Going to try melatonin and Benadryl (separately) next. Fortunately our vet works with us to treat her while we do that.Anyone else's dog terrible at the vet? One of ours has gotten progressively worse, where last time I had to body slam and hold him down, and he still scratched me up good. Also had to have a muzzle on him. It was at one of those mobile clinics, so now we have to go to the actual vet and We will need to drastically sedate him.
We gave him 200 mg trazadone, a calming treat, and cbd treats, and still he went nuts lol his first visits were all fine, but just got more and more reactive in time .. anyone got any suggestions?

We go the Senior adoption route. Started with Riley (black lab/hound mix) 6 years ago she's going on 13. Mr Gus was next (Red Fox Lab). Gave him the best 2 years of his life, passed at 14. Our newest is Lilly (Chocolate). 9 y.o. and blind, dumped at a shelter, couldn't say no to her.
Thank you, it's been easy and very rewarding to us as well. These pups know they've hit the lottery and appreciate every moment.You’re a saint for doing this!!! Those are beautiful pups!
Can you lock them up in a different space while she is there? An aggressive cat is more formidable than people think. I wonder if something has changed in there, there is usually a reason they change behaviors. Maybe they don’t like the scent of the cleaning materials.Looking for some thoughts here, my cats have recently started "protecting" my bedroom from the cleaning service that comes in every other week. She called me to tell me that she was nervous about going into that room because that cats were sitting on the dresser hissing at her. They have never shown any aggression towards me or anyone that didn't pick them up, or my buddy's shi-tzu that comes over once in a while. I have no idea what to tell her other than she might try feeding them but I have them on a schedule that I would rather not change up too much.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Maybe, but I'm not there during the day when she cleans. They've been around several different cleaning people in the four years I've had them but they are rather large cats (standing on their hind legs they can wrap their front leg around a door knob to try and open the door) and I wouldn't want to actually fight with one of them, though they've never been anything but playful.Can you lock them up in a different space while she is there?
