Pain Management

It is no secret that pain affects the quality of your pet’s life, and managing pain appropriately is the key to your pet’s overall health and happiness. Since your pet cannot tell you when they are in pain or where they hurt, it is important to be aware of red flags that may indicate something is amiss.

Acute & Chronic Pain Management

It might be time to seek veterinary help for your pet if he or she exhibits any of the following signs:

  • Whining or crying
  • Uncharacteristic aggression
  • Hiding
  • Seeking more attention than usual
  • Lethargy or restlessness
  • Changes in behavior
  • Changes in eating or sleeping patterns
  • Licking or chewing an area of the body

If your pet is experiencing chronic pain, or pain that can be associated with arthritis or cancer, it must be managed through long-term care in order to reduce your pet’s suffering. Managing your pet’s pain can include a variety of tactics, involving:

  • Medication may be prescribed for cases of severe or chronic pain and will often be the easiest and best option.
  • Supplements are known to manage pain in a more holistic and natural way. Ask your veterinarian if supplements are appropriate for your pet.
  • Laser Therapy is a non-invasive treatment that accelerates healing and reduces pain. Your veterinarian may recommend several sessions depending on your pet’s condition and the severity of your pet’s pain.
