Pain Management


Pain Management

All routine surgical patients are started on two different types of pain medications prior to surgery and sent home with medications if there is any possibility they will be uncomfortable.

More invasive surgeries (such as declaws, orthopedic or oncologic procedures) will be kept on continuous rate infusions of injectable pain medications during and after the surgery.

We also utilize nerve blocks and local anesthetics for many common dental procedures as well as declaws and miscellaneous orthopedic and soft tissue surgeries. In addition, because we are a 24 hour care facility we can safely administer CRIs of pain medications to patients who are painful following trauma or orthopedic or other disease.
