Pain Management and Control
We know the issue of pain management is of great concern to pet owners today. Evidence shows that leaving a pet in discomfort impairs the healing process and can significantly affect your pet's attitude and activity level. As in human medicine, we have a variety of medications available to manage your pet's level of discomfort.
Managing the level of discomfort in our patients helps them heal after an injury or surgery. When a surgical procedure is scheduled, our veterinarians administer medication before, during, and after the surgery. This has a great impact on the amount of discomfort your pet may experience throughout his or her recovery.
As pets get older, arthritis may impair their mobility and prevent them from doing the things they enjoy. Pain management may help relieve pain, improve mobility, and ultimately make them happier. A thorough senior wellness exam will provide the opportunity for you and your pet's veterinarian to discuss how your pet may benefit from pain management, special nutrition and exercise to minimize further discomfort.
