For abdomen and chest rads, you generally do not need sedation unless the dog is a total pill. Limbs are a little more tricky because many dogs do not just lay there and it involves one or two people holding the dog which contributes to their radiation exposure. There are drugs like dexdomitor which give sedation. And it is reversible.
