So sorry you have hit such a roadblock about proper pain meds.

  It's abiously that dog is in pain, but vet said Previcox is enough and that is good that dog feels pain

STUNNED that a Vet would say rhat!!!   If he just had his leg amputated  and was in the hospital  woth virtually NO pain meds his Surgeon would be sued and lose his license!!!!

Is it possible at all you could find another Vet who would be up to date on pain management ??

How is the swelling around hos penis?

Wish we could help somehow..........

Hugs

Andrej, I know how frustrating it can be to learn that your vet isn't up to date on the latest science. It's especially frustrating when it is your only option in town to treat your dog.

But if a vet doesn't keep up with new scientific breakthroughs after leaving school, they continue treating dogs with outdated methods. Our animals suffer as a result. I'm sorry that your sweet boy is in such discomfort.

Long ago, 20 or more years in the past, vets believed that animals should feel pain to keep them quiet. They thought that by withholding pain medicine, it would help them recover. Well, that kind of thinking is VERY outdated. Animals suffer when they are in pain. That "quiet" is not healing, or helpful. Scientists have since found that animals have the exact same pain systems as humans, and that we all recover better when surgical pain is under control. 

If your vet is resistant, please show them these official pain management guidelines that address post-surgical animal pain in more detail.

Αντρέι, ξέρω πόσο απογοητευτικό μπορεί να είναι να μαθαίνεις ότι ο κτηνίατρός σου δεν είναι ενημερωμένος για την πιο πρόσφατη επιστήμη. Είναι ιδιαίτερα απογοητευτικό όταν είναι η μόνη σας επιλογή στην πόλη να περιποιηθείτε τον σκύλο σας.

Αλλά αν ένας κτηνίατρος δεν το παρακολουθήσει μετά την έξοδο από το σχολείο, συνεχίζει να θεραπεύει τα σκυλιά με απαρχαιωμένες μεθόδους. Τα ζώα μας υποφέρουν ως αποτέλεσμα. Λυπάμαι που το γλυκό αγόρι σου είναι σε τέτοια ταλαιπωρία.

Πολύ καιρό πριν, 20 ή περισσότερα χρόνια στο παρελθόν, οι κτηνίατροι πίστευαν ότι τα ζώα πρέπει να αισθάνονται πόνο για να τα κρατούν ήσυχα. Νόμιζαν ότι με την παρακράτηση του φαρμάκου για τον πόνο, θα τους βοηθούσε να αναρρώσουν. Λοιπόν, αυτό το είδος σκέψης είναι ΠΟΛΥ ξεπερασμένο. Τα ζώα υποφέρουν όταν πονούν. Αυτή η «ησυχία» δεν είναι θεραπευτική ή χρήσιμη. Οι επιστήμονες ανακάλυψαν έκτοτε ότι τα ζώα έχουν ακριβώς τα ίδια συστήματα πόνου με τους ανθρώπους και ότι όλοι αναρρώνουμε καλύτερα όταν ο χειρουργικός πόνος είναι υπό έλεγχο.

Εάν ο κτηνίατρός σας είναι ανθεκτικός, δείξτε του αυτές τις επίσημες οδηγίες διαχείρισης του πόνου που αντιμετωπίζουν τον μετεγχειρητικό πόνο των ζώων με περισσότερες λεπτομέρειες.

See my answer above Sally. This was common thinking in the past. Even human medical doctors would say that about infants. Thank dog science has made a few advances since those days.
