Although pets may not show the same symptoms of pain as people do, such as whining or crying, we know that most animals suffer pain when they are sick, injured, or have had surgery. Providing whatever pain relief is appropriate is a humane and caring thing to do that reduces stress. We also know that the healing process is faster in the absence of pain. For these reasons, it is extremely important that our pets receive aggressive pain control.
Good pain control uses multiple types of medications, as well as local and general anesthesia. Our anesthetic and sedation services help our patients remain relaxed and comfortable during a procedure. Our staff provides follow-up pain management to ensure the animal is comfortable after surgery.
