In numerous clinical trials, the sole side effect was reverse sneezing (moderate respiratory discomfort), which was very temporary and had no influence on the drug's effectiveness.

What special precautions are there?
Never use without visiting a veterinarian first. Never use in an animal that has a medication allergy or is hypersensitive to it. This medicine can reduce an animal's blood pressure by blocking the neurological regulation of the blood vessels. This can raise the heart rate in some animals. As a result, administer with caution to animals with heart disease. In boxers, drug responses might result in cardiac arrhythmias and a reduction in blood pressure. As a result, this drug should be avoided in this breed. This product has the potential to cause sedation. It's possible that a paradoxical reaction of extreme enthusiasm or hostility will develop. Because of these factors, dogs on this medicine should be treated gently and should not be left alone with small children. In a vulnerable animal, this medicine might aggravate or induce seizures or epileptic fits. When giving medication to a pet with a seizure problem, use caution or avoid giving it at all. Warm up your pet. This drug has the potential to lower the body temperature. Other drugs may interact with this drug. Check with your veterinarian to see if any of your pet's other drugs interact with acepromazine. Antidiarrheals, antacids, epinephrine, propranolol, barbiturates, and opioids are among these medications. The most common effect is for pets to become more calm, quiet, and sluggish. Many pets might appear unsteady or clumsy. This is to be expected, and it may linger for several hours after dose. Third eyelid elevation is typical after usage. This is a reversible and non-concerning response.
What to do if overdose?
If overdose occurs, please contact your local pet hospital or emergency pet clinic immediately.
How can I store Acepromazine Maleate Injection, 10 mg/ml 50 ml vial?
Keep product stored in a dry and cool environment.
Typical doses will titrate down as the animal's body weight increases. This product is administered in mg based on pounds of body weight. Dosing depends on the level of tranquilization required and the individual animal. Administer intravenously, intramuscularly, or subcutaneously.
