Trazodone can be used to calm a dog. For grooming, veterinary visits, and other short-term situations, this is a good dog sedative. Diazepam is an anti-anxiety medication that can be used to treat anxiety in dogs. It is also used as a pain reliever for dogs with arthritis or other conditions that cause pain.
Doxycycline is used for the treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs). It can also be given to dogs that have been treated for UTIs with other antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin (Cipralex) or erythromycin (Erythropoietin).
If your dog has had a UTI, you may want to give him/her a dose of this medication to help prevent the infection from spreading to other parts of the body. Your veterinarian may also recommend that you give your pet an antibiotic to reduce the risk of infection.
If you have any questions about the use of any of these medications, please contact your veterinarian.
