    Default Pain medication after OVH?

    Some people were using Morphine, but it may be not effective in dogs. I have been using Carprofen. Any other thoughts/rationale?

    there is no clear answer, the degree of pain has to do with many things, like lenght of incision or the characher ( or the breed)of the dog( some withstand better pain than others). W can better tak about aesthesia-pain management. The opoioids are a hole chapter, also a chapter alone is what y find in every country, strong onew i believe are too strong for just a ove. Also y have to inject them. nsaid are ok as you can give them po for some days. you inject before the procedure andd you give the same ( very important to be the same) po for some days 1 or 2 usually are enough. care for renal health nsaids. carprofen is a good choice as it is one of the most studied and proven to be quite safe and efective. Y have to study very well every substance before y use it. my favorite book is a bsava anesthesia it has very good chapters for every substance.

    Here in Hungary, we are routinely useing meloxicam, (first day 0,2mg/kgs, from the second day 0,1mg/kgs, SID), sometimes Metamizole, or Tramadol is needed in a low dose.

    In Macedonia we are also using meloxicam and tramadol, but rarely metamizole. So far we have good experience with meloxicam
