Pain Management

Pets can experience pain and discomfort for many reasons, ranging from acute injuries to chronic conditions. While some causes of pain such an obvious injury are easy to notice, other causes of discomfort can be subtle and easily missed by the untrained eye . If left untreated, these pains can have severe impacts on mobility and ultimately, quality of life. 

Common causes of long-term pain include:

  • Arthritis and joint problems 
  • Cancer
  • Nerve damage

With the modern day advances in medicine, we now have access to a wide range of therapeutics to help reduce your pet’s discomfort safely. If you suspect your pet is in pain or showing signs of discomfort, speak with us to discuss an appropriate diagnostic approach and pain management plan to ensure your pet’s well-being and quality of life.

Our approach focuses on the first assessing your pet and identifying the source of pain before developing a treatment plan. Any treatment plans developed are:

  • Tailored for your individual pet’s needs.
  • Multimodal (involving multiple drugs) to reduce the risk of adverse drug effects from a single drug.
  • Dynamic with frequent reviews and modifications as required.

Palliative care

In cases of chronic or terminal illnesses where a cure may not be possible, our approach focuses on providing comfort and maintaining the best possible quality of life for your pet.

Palliative care strategies may include pain medications, supportive therapies, and assistance with mobility or daily activities to ensure that your pet experiences minimal distress and pain in their last days.

“With effective pain management strategies, your pets can remain active and pain-free even in their later years.”
