Buprenorphine Or Butorphanol

Neyla is receiving her first IV pamidronate treatment tomorrow in the hopes of relieving her osteo pain. Aside from the risk of side effects to the kidneys, my main concern is that the treatment is given by IV over a 4 hour time period and Neyla gets very nervous at the vet's office. I discussed this with the oncologist and she suggested we could use a light sedative to help the time pass faster for Neyla if she really can't settle down in the kennel. I am hesitant to add an unknown to the treatment although she reassured me that this drug isn't processed through the kidneys, but I am doing my research anyway just in case. She said she would want to use buprenorphine or butorphanol. Does anyone have any experience with this drug?

 

Thank you.

 

ETA: I am researching it online as well, was just hoping maybe someone had used it with their own dog, or someone who works in the industry could chime in on cumulative experience, if that makes sense.

Nevermind, I've decide no sedative. Either she can tolerate the treatment or she can't. Thanks.
