Q Lynne asks:

if a dog was being treated for severe burns would there be an alternative to iv treatment to hydrate and administer pain relief ?

Q Our vet says: When dogs or any other animals have severe burns they often need
i/v fluids. This is because it is a good route to replace the body fluids they are losing from their burns. I/v pain relief is also used since it will act relatively quickly. However in cases where i/v fluids are not possible for some reason (perhaps where burns make it difficult to access the viens for example) it may be possible for other routes to be used.
