Pain management is an important part of our surgical protocol, and we believe in maximizing the comfort level of your pet at all times. We administer pain medication before beginning the procedure, during the procedure, and post-operatively as required for your pet. Here at Brookdale Animal Hospital, we use a multi-modal approach to pain management. A multi-modal approach refers to the layered administration of small amounts of different drugs to minimize any pain that your pet might feel during or after the procedure. Because we administer lower doses of each individual drug, your pet will experience fewer adverse side effects, more complete pain relief and faster post-operative recovery.
