Pain Management


Pain (2)

Pets experiencing pain can’t tell us they hurt. Pets in pain may restrict their activity, stop eating and playing, become depressed or aggressive, and refuse to interact with the family. Often, they do not let on that they are in pain at all. Pets may tolerate pain better than humans, but that does not mean they do not feel it.

Our veterinary team works hard to identify and limit the pain felt by our patients. Our doctors are educated in the variety and uses of current pain medications, and use a multi-modal approach, often recommending the strategic combination of more than one pain medication, with diet, physical therapy, supplements etc., if appropriate.

Pet comfort is one of the most important issues to people. Pets without pain want to play, exercise, and participate in family activities. They feel better, and so do their owners.
