Tooth extraction and sedation


I've scoured the messages for this topic and I've come up with quite a few but they are all over the board on context so here's my question --


Justin is getting a fractured molar extracted next week and he will be under sedation (standing) for as long as three hours. He's PPID/not IR and is on pergolide, J-Herb, MovEase, L-glutamine and balanced minerals. Currently he is also on Uniprim and pre/pro-biotic. He's also due for his Flu/Rhino shot but I'm not sure when to give it -- now or after the procedure?

When we did the Xrays last week, he seemed to handle the sedation "cocktail" (not sure what it was) fairly well but just wondering if it would be best to discontinue any of the above prior to this procedure?

Any advice on which sedatives would work the best would also be great. My vet is very cautious and I'd like to give her any info that may help. 

Thanks in Advance,

Alice & Justin
