How do I get my adopted 6 yr old Shih Tzu in my car?

I live in Pa. and went to a shelter in NY to adopt my 6 yr old Shih Tzu. He was fine on the car ride home (slept).

We have tried putting him in the car to take him to the vet again ( first time we did get him in the car BUT he went crazy that the vet had to muzzle him to examine him.
We had a HOME vet come but he was not able to examine him because he was biting and growling.
He needs to go to the vet again but we cannot get him into the car.
We were making progress that led him to be picked up and put into the car so we took a 10 minutes drive. He was fine UNTIL my husband stepped out to empty garbage and he would not allow him back into the car. He growled and bit me ( I was in the back seat and he jumped into the front.
All in all I would like to find out how I can calm him SEDATE him to get him in the car to go to the vet,

ps Since his ordeal in the car that day he barks at us for no reason.
