We know the issue of pain management is of great concern to pet owners today. As in human medicine, we have a variety of medications available to manage your pet’s pain both before and after surgery and in the event of trauma. Our pain management protocols include the use of epidural anesthetics, fentanyl patches, local dental anesthesia for tooth extractions, and local injectable anesthetic for cat declaws, just to name a few. Our surgery patients are all sent home with pain medication post-operatively to be administered by their owners to give pets the most comfort possible. We would be pleased to discuss the options available to you and your pet under any of the above circumstances.
