MVSS plays an active role in reviewing the pain management protocols available to your pet when surgeries are performed. Hospitals in general are very proactive and do an excellent job with state of the art effective pain management protocols. There is never an excuse to allow pain to go unmanaged. Surgeries will result in the creation of different levels of pain, depending on the surgical procedure performed. Many orthopedic injuries or surgeries as well as surgeries or trauma to visceral organ pain (organs within the abdomen) to mention only a few, can result in severe pain experienced by the patient. This must be managed appropriately and your hospital team ensures that this is achieved.
Dr. Garcia and Dr. Fabregas discuss the pain management plan with each of the hospitals and reviews the protocol to make sure the patient has appropriate pain medications available.
