Pain Management

My Pet’s Veterinary Center provides the best and latest pain management available in veterinary medicine. Our goal is to make our patients are as “pain free” as possible.

 A multi-modal approach to pain is proven to provide best control. Multiple pharmacologic and complementary options can be used at the same time:

 

EMOTIONAL AND MENTAL WELL BEING:

Mental anguish is real and will exacerbate any other pain that is felt or even just anticipated. Anxiety and fear should be reduced to a minimum, especially during veterinary visits. We use different calming methods from low stress handling, pheromone therapy (calming smells), music and calm demeanor.

 

PHARMACOLOGIC PAIN CONTROL:

·        Anti-inflammatory medications that can be given orally or as an injection

·        Opiate (morphine like) medications, that can be given orally or as an injection

·        Other pain control medications

·        Certain medications can also be administered as a skin gel that will be absorbed by the skin (transdermal medication)

·        Local anesthesia

 

COMPLEMENTARY OPTIONS FOR PAIN CONTROL:

  • Surgical laser
  • Laser therapy
  • Chiropractics

 

SURGICAL PAIN:

The best way to control pain is to do it before, during and after surgery with:

  • Pain control before surgery: Research shows that patients do much better if pain control is instituted before the causing event
  • Pain control during surgery: Different injectable medications and local anesthetics are used to help pain control during surgery. This allows us to decrease the amount of general anesthesia to the minimum, therefore decreasing any potential adverse risks
  • Pain control after surgery:  Oral medications and detailed instructions to rest and help your pet heal will be given
  • Surgical and therapy lasers also available to control the pain and help the recovery as much as possible
