Acepromazine is frequently used before surgery (in combination with other sedatives and anesthetics), to provide smoother sedation in patients. It is classified as a phenothiazine neuroleptic, which means it modifies the chemicals in the brain to change a pet’s behavior. The exact mechanism of this medication is unknown, but it is thought to block the receptors of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a chemical messenger that controls movement, emotional response, and the ability to experience pain.
