I have a question for Hayley. I watched the webinars on patient welfare and pain relief and I belief 100 procent that we need to give more pain medication to our surgical patients at the clinic. But my main question is. What pain medications can you offer the pet when he/she goes home. NSAID comes in formulas that are easy to send home with the patient but what about extra pain medication? Which extra medications can you give at home? We often have owners asking for a buster collar since the dog or cat licks the wound so I understand after the webinar that our pain relief medication at home (NSAID) is probably not enough? …. So what can you give extra?
