What Is Pet Pain Management?

Our veterinarians are well-versed in a number of surgical and non-surgical techniques that help to manage the symptoms of pets in pain. Pain management is a routine part of treatment for chronic conditions and recovery for pets that have undergone surgery. With our pain management techniques, there are plenty of benefits that your pet can reap, whether they’re experiencing age-related arthritis or a broken bone. These include:

  • Enhanced health and overall well being
  • Higher probability for a longer, more active lifespan
  • Possibility for a faster recovery time
  • Reduced chance of complications and re-injury
  • Decreased stress and anxiety

Signs Your Pet Is in Pain

When you notice behaviors outside of your pet’s daily habits or changes in their routine, pain could be a part of the problem. Whether these changes are sudden or gradual, our veterinarians can pinpoint the root of the problem and provide effective pet pain management remedies to help address their symptoms. Some signs that your pet might be in pain include the following:

  • Acting differently than normal
  • Excessive crying and whining/whimpering
  • Persistent heavy panting
  • Spending more time hiding away from your family
  • Restlessness and not sleeping throughout the night
