Dr. Michael Wishnack, Veterinarian and Emergency Surgeon, Animal Emergency Clinic of San Diego, explains the advantages and flexibility of the Mini-Infuser™:  “The clients really want their pets to be comfortable after surgery, and when you’ve had an animal who’s had multiple traumas and fractures, pain control is essential.”“I like the idea”, Dr Wishnack says, “of having a send-home pack that you can use with a constant rate of infusion of multiple analgesics. This gives us the flexibility of using medications we normally can’t use at home. They (the clients) like the fact that their pet is home and we can change out the Mini-Infuser™ and put in a new amount of medication.”Dr. Wishnack is not alone in his reliance on an effective infusion device for post-surgical pain in animals. He is participating in use case validation with the mini-infuser. See an overview of these use cases here
