Pets experience pain just like humans do. Their pain can range from chronic to acute depending on the underlying cause. In many situations, pets can become less active, less mobile, or simply more reluctant to engage in activities they once did. When this happens, there could be an underlying pain problem. Our goal is always to understand the cause of the pain and to offer the best suited treatment for it possible.
Pain relief strategies are always based on the specific needs of your pet. We don’t just treat symptoms or reduce pain. We aim to offer comprehensive services to improve your pet’s health the best way possible. Our pain management and control options vary but you can talk to us about any of your concerns including:
The pain management and control options we provide come after a full examination and diagnostic screening. In some situations, we offer medications that can help to improve the pet’s health or minimize the amount of pain they are in. We also offer pet acupuncture and chiropractic services. For many pets, these alternative treatments are ideally suited for improving quality of life without having any side effects from medications. We offer them whenever they are best suited for the individual situation your pet faces.
