What precautions/measures do you take so my pet doesn’t feel pain related to surgery/injury/infection/chronic disease?

Your pet’s comfort is a priority for us. Using our knowledge of pain medication and pain relief strategies, we do everything we can to prevent and manage your pet’s pain under all circumstances. By taking a proactive approach to pain management, we try to stop pain before it starts. For ongoing pain management, we often use multiple medications, which allows us to use lower doses, but get a synergistic effect and better pain control than a high dose of just one drug. Local anesthetics and topical treatments are great alternatives for pets who do not tolerate oral medications as well. We also offer nutritional supplements, acupuncture and chiropractic services, which can help control pain in some pets.We will tailor a pain management plan to your pet’s medical condition and individual needs.
