Pain is a terrible thing. Pedernales Veterinary Center wants to alleviate as much pain and discomfort in our patients as possible. In an effort to bring you the highest quality care, we are dedicated to provide top notch pain management.
When our pets are in pain, so are we. It’s an awful feeling to know that your special friend is hurting, especially when there isn’t anything you can do to help them. It is our goal to eliminate as much pain as possible, and to give these pets a better quality of life.
We also anticipate and plan for procedures with the potential for future pain. In addition, we also work with pet owners to educate them on how to recognize signs of pain in your pet.
Every surgery patient receives pain medication (usually an opioid) prior to the onset of pain. We do not wait until pain happens, we prevent it. We adhere to strong pain control policies, and it is not optional.
