Comprehensive Multimodal Pain Management
Comprehensive multimodal pain management refers to combining multiple analgesic (pain targeting) drug classes or techniques to target different points along the pain pathway in the patient. This can include specific medications before, during, and following procedures that may cause discomfort or pain.
Studies have shown that patients medicated before painful procedures experience shorter healing times and fewer complications. Post-operative analgesics are prescribed to keep your pet comfortable once home, alleviating pain and its associated stress, which has also been shown to reduce recovery times.
In non-surgical patients who experience some form of chronic pain (osteoarthritis, etc.), a proactive approach to pain management is key. Patients who suffer from chronic pain but are well-managed with analgesics can still live active, healthy lives.
Our pets cannot tell us when, why, or where they are in pain. Multimodal pain management aims to find the correct medications in the most effective dosages to combat pain and discomfort in all of its various forms.
