Anesthetics and Analgesics for Axolotls

I am looking for information on the following, full references are 
essential as we need this information to respond to our animal care 
committee's concerns.

1) Do axolotls need a post leg amputation analgesic? If not why not? If 
they do, what sort is appropriate? For how long into the regeneration 
period do they require painkillers?

2) Is there another anesthetic other than MS222 appropriate for 
anesthetising the axolotls for such an amputation?

Your asistance is greatly appreciated.
