Stop before you grab that aspirin for Fido or Sylvester — call us! Our team is experienced and well-trained in veterinary pain management. Whether it’s a mild limp, a severe & acute injury, or a chronic pain issue in a young or geriatric patient, we will develop a specific pain management plan that fits your pet’s exact needs.
The secret to effective pain management in the veterinary patient is the same as that in the human patient – there is no “one size fits all”. Again, we will customize the plan that best fits you and your pet. After we’ve worked with you and your pet, you will leave with an action plan that you understand.
Contact us today to discuss how we can help you give your pet the best comfort and quality of life!
Your pet will receive a comprehensive physical examination based on the symptoms exhibited at home. Your pet's evaluation will include any possible complicating factors (such as neurological diseases). When indicated, we can perform diagnostics to further identify or localize the source or sources of the pain.
Multi-modal therapies will be recommended to help you care for your pet. This includes nutritional supplements, anti-inflammatories, dietary and body mass management, as well as exercise guidelines.
There’s a great chance your pet will benefit from low-level laser therapy (for which we’ve designated an entire page to!). Check out Mushu’s success on our Facebook page and see the testimonials from his “mom!”
Many owners see their pets develop much greater range of motion when we administer a monthly joint supplement in our hospital. And of course, we can discuss the appropriate usage of medications that will work specifically at blocking pain.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy can also be administered in our hospital. This is being touted as successful in many human and veterinary treatment regimens.
As you can see, there is no “one size fits all”.
