We practice multi-modal analgesia to manage pain during and after surgery. This means that a variety of pain-controlling drugs are administered to treat multiple parts of the pain pathway. During more invasive surgical cases, a special cocktail of drugs is made to be given intravenously to provide very strong, safe, and effective pain control. The better we treat pain as it happens, the faster your pet will recover. We also always provide pain-relieving drugs post-operatively to help your pet recover at home.
We understand the stress that comes with a pet undergoing surgery. All pets are closely monitored during their procedures (heart rate, blood oxygenation, ECG, blood pressure, CO2 concentration) to ensure a safe anesthetic episode.
