The best feeling a pet care provider can have is when an animal under their care feels no pain. And we know that you, as a pet owner, feel the same.
We take the steps necessary to make sure your dog, cat, or pocket pet has his or her pain managed in the safest and most effective way.
There are many different options for pain management. Sometimes a medication is appropriate, but there are also many supplements and procedures that can also decrease pain for your pet. Anti-inflammatories and NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) are often what we use to manage your pet’s pain. For moderate to severe cases, multiple medications and/or treatments may be needed.
We have pain medications and supplements in stock. So when your pet needs to begin doses, you can get them started right away.
We use ultrasound, digital X-ray, and our in-house lab to spot the issue causing your pet’s pain.
Sometimes, a regular wellness checkup reveals that pain is being caused by something more ordinary, like weight issues or arthritis. Your pet’s annual exam allows us to find issues before they cause a problem and helps us to intervene before problems become irreversible.
Surgical patients receive both pre- and post-operative pain medications to try to diminish any pain associated with their procedure. We also provide you with instructions for administering pain meds at home, as well as guidelines on identifying pain in pets. Animals instinctively try to hide their pain, so it helps to know what to look for.
