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 medications at the time of dismissal after surgery. This injection is in addition to the routine medications used during and immediately after surgery. This injection will provide the pet with an additional 18-24 hour period of pain 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
