Pet Pain Management
Your pet’s health and comfort are important to us. Our animal medical center can provide a variety of pet pain management programs to ease your pet’s pain and keep them comfortable.
Often, pets will hide their pain from their owners. Monitoring changes in your pet’s behavior can provide valuable pet pain information. Our veterinary team has the experience to develop pain management treatment plans for all types of pet pain such as arthritis or surgical pain.
We offer a variety of pet pain medication available at our onsite pharmacy. We take great care to explain the dosing, administration and side effects of your pet’s medications to you.
It is important to note, that not all pet pain medications can be shared between dogs and cats. Aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen carry special dangers for your pet. Not only are they poor pain relievers, but they can cause serious potential side effects such as gastric ulcers/bleeding, or can be extremely toxic causing death.
Please call before giving any medication to your pet that your veterinarian has not prescribed. Please contact us to schedule an appointment. We are pleased to discuss all aspects of your pet’s health care.
