We strongly believe that controlling post-operative pain is an essential part of patient care. Pets (especially cats) can be remarkably stoic and often won’t show obvious signs of discomfort even when they are in moderate to severe pain. We practice routine pain assessment scoring as all patients react to pain differently. We provide pain relief to our patients before, during and after procedures to minimize post-operative pain. Often, depending on the procedure will send additional pain medication home with patients to ensure they stay comfortable for the days following surgery and speed recovery.
