What can I do to calm an overly anxious dog?

Calm Fido's Nerves

Does Fido have a hard time sitting still? We all know what it feels like to be anxious and overly worked up—it's no picnic. If your dog becomes antsy and excited on a regular basis he may have a condition that needs attention. A pet behavior problem is something that shouldn't be taken lightly. Contact a vet immediately and have your pet examined.

Acepromazine maleate is a phenothiazine tranquilizer that is often helpful in soothing a dog with a behavior problem. This medication decreases anxiety and causes both the blood pressure and heart rate to lower. Acepromazine blocks the control of some blood vessels, and aids in getting more blood flow to certain areas of the body.
