A preventive multimodal analgesic strategy for bilateral rostral mandibulectomy in a horse



This case report describes the use of a wound soaker catheter as part of a preventive multimodal analgesic plan in a mare undergoing a bilateral rostral mandibulectomy. The administration of local anaesthetic into the surgical wound using a wound soaker catheter, together with systemic nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and opioid therapy, controlled post operative pain satisfactorily.
