Buprenex is an oral opioid medication that is great for managing pain. It can be dosed every 8-12 hours and is an oral liquid. This makes it very easy for owners to administer. I use this more in smaller patients as they seem to have a better response to it than the bigger dogs. Also, there is a significant price difference in the amount needed for smaller dogs versus larger dogs.
