Narcotic Pain Injection
Some patients, especially with more painful procedures, really need additional pain control. A narcotic can be used in these situations. Morphine is an example of a narcotic pain medication used in people very often. This medication and others very similar to it are used in veterinary medicine for pain control.
Calming Injection on Entry
Coming to the veterinary office can be very stressful for Pets. Especially after having food withheld in preparation for surgery. Some Pets can really benefit from a calming medication as soon as they arrive prior to getting fully worked up and stressed out while waiting for their pre-anesthetic medications. This would be very similar to a person receiving Valium as soon as they arrive at the hospital while waiting for their own procedure.
Additional Pain Medication (as needed)
PAIN control is very important to us at Trinity Veterinary Hospital. Thus, our Optimal plan includes additional pain medication if your baby needs it. This would be in addition to the Narcotic and NSAID injections. The Narcotic injection typically last 6-8 hours, but some Pets have break through pain even during this time. For these instances, another narcotic injection maybe necessary.
