Dexdormitor is a great sedative I'm sure you can find a vet near you that has it. We use it all the time. They wake up so fast we can just use it during a regular appointment but since your dog doesn't do well at the vet I suggest getting them to do a great physical exam, draw some blood for a blood panal, and give any needed vaccines while doing your nail trim that way u get more bang for your buck.

A lot of westies have allergies. Sometimes switching to a novel protein food can help, but when you go to the vet u can ask about apoquel that would stop him from itching.

I'd call around and find a vet who uses dexdormitor as a sedative its completely reversible with another drug antisedan. He will wake right up. At the vet where I work we will have the owner hold the dog , give the dog an injection of dexdormitor and butorphanol in the muscle in their back leg then turn off the lights in the exam room and let the dog fall asleep with the owner then do all the vet stuff give antisedan and the dog wakes up in 5 minutes. Sounds perfect for your dog.

If you are looking into joint supplements I'd get the synovi G4.

The vet where I work only uses metacam daily if all liver and kidney values are normal. Did they do a blood panel before prescribing? Also metacam is a nsaid and tram. Is just for pain so usually she prescribes both to be used together, but only if the blood work looks good.

Sounds like a partial cranial cruciate ligament tear to me. In humans they call it the acl. Some vets have a hard time diagnosing it so id mention it and ask them to do a drawer test. You can't really see anything on x-ray its more of a rule out diagnosis.

Hook worms are in the small intestine and whip worms are in the large intestine. Whip worms are almost impossible to kill in the environment so you'll have to use a heartworm prevention with a preventative for whip worms(trifexis or sentinel) to protect your dog from having them.

Whip worms are and intestinal parasite. If u want to prevent her from having whip worms again u can use a heart worm prevention that prevents whip worms as well. Sentinel and trifexis are the 2 that get whip worms as well. The blood on the stool can be caused by the whip worms.
