Pain Management

Animals Feel Pain Too!

At one time it was thought animals did not experience pain. Veterinarians now know that this is false and our pets deserve to be comfortable after any painful procedure or surgery.

Multimodal Approach

A multimodal approach to pain control is commonly used, since no single drug acts on all pain pathways. By using drugs in combination, less of each drug is used, thereby decreasing any adverse side effects while still controlling pain.

Examples of various pain medications include:

  • Opioids
  • Tramadol
  • Local anesthetics
  • Gabapentin

Pain-free (and so tired!)
