For years veterinarians have known that the pain threshold of animals is much higher than that of humans. This is evident when we see pets that walk back to their owners a few hours after surgery wagging their tails.
Studies show that pets do much better when given pain medication upon dismissal, following surgery. These medications are in addition to routine drugs used during and immediately after surgery, such as antibiotics and anti inflammatory drugs. Pain medication therapy provides your pet with an additional 18-24 hour period of relief after surgery.
Pain relief is shown to:
- Minimize Immunity suppression which can lead to post surgical infection
- Shorten Wound Healing Time
- Hasten Return Of Appetite
- Decrease Post Operative Nausea
