My Golden was sedated a few times for hip x-rays and when he tore his cruciate ligament. The first time, they added something with Morphine combined and it took him three days to get over the effects and eating again. Next time, I requested another type of sedation that could be easily reversed and it was much better.
The last bunch of x-rays I had done for unexplained limping this past summer and early fall, I convinced the vet to take them without sedation and it worked out just fine.
