Pain Management in Dogs Transcript
I had some rather painful surgery a few years ago and it made me appreciate how stoic our cats and dogs truly are. I was bedridden for a few weeks. It is not uncommon for my cat and dog patients who have undergone the same procedure to be up and around after only a few days. Now, was I just of a wuss or do our pets not feel pain to the same extent that we do? Dogs and cats are basically wired for pain in the same fashion that we are. Though they demonstrate their discomfort differently, they still require safe and effective pain management. .
If you notice any of these signs, be sure to bring them to your veterinarian's attention. Insuring the best quality of life, free of pain, is what we want for ourselves as well as our pets. Though we often treat our pets like children, they are not human. Medications prescribed for you should never be given to your pet. Even drugs that are dispensed to one pet in your home may have dire consequences if given to another. Always ask your veterinarian before administering any medication not specifically prescribed for that particular pet or that particular situation.
