At PetDocks Veterinary Hospital, we are proud to announce that we employ and follow the guidelines defined by the American College of Veterinary Anesthesiologist for appropriate monitoring of anesthetized veterinary patients. We and position on the treatment of pain in veterinary patients.
Our pain relief protocols are complete and multi-modal (meaning we address surgical as well as other sources of pain at multiple levels) in order to provide the best and most comprehensive pain management possible. Although our pain management protocols are proactive, they are very safe. In fact, patients that receive inadequate pain management often have more complications following surgery and have longer recovery and healing times.
