Pain Management
Your pet can have acute pain and chronic pain
We offer a varied approach for pain management in our patients for both acute pain and chronic pain.
Unlike when we go to our doctor, your pet can't always tell you where it hurts. Pets often mask their pain; this is a survival behavior learned in the wild.

A comprehensive physical pet exam and discussion of symptoms with clients allows our doctors to detect any abnormalities that can help uncover any disease or pain your pet is feeling.
The first step in the process is to determine what your pets specific pain needs are. Every pet is different, and what’s right for one animal may not work for another. Our experienced staff will conduct a thorough analysis of your pet’s overall health, taking into account such important factors as the breed, age, weight and the existence of any medical conditions or other pain and health concerns.

SENIOR PETS
A large proportion of our older patients have osteoarthritis (arthritis) and their quality of life may be significantly improved with medical therapy.

Only about 15-20 % of cats* with severe arthritis show symptoms to owners such as limping or vocalizing.

They may have subtle symptoms such as stiffness, reluctance to use the litter box, reluctance to jump, loss of muscle mass, sleeping more, hiding, reluctance to be picked up, irritability, decreased interaction, or even excessive grooming/ pulling hair out.

Dogs with osteoarthritis may have symptoms such as stiffness, loss of muscle mass, limping (both weight-bearing or nonweightbearing), difficulty sitting down/standing up, difficulty jumping onto couch, difficulty getting into the car, and irritability when touched.

We offer treatments including several supplements such as glucosamine and omega fish fatty acids as well as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories (Deramax, Rimadyl, Novox, and Metacam).

Some injections and Laser Therapy have also been very successful as an additional option for arthritis management.
