Pain Management

Pain Management

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.

Important COVID-19 Update

Currently at this time we are open, and we are still available to see our medical patients.  In order to keep our community and staff as safe as possible  however, we will be practicing "hands free" appointments. Our hospital doors will be locked, but we will have a team member meet you outside and bring your pet into the clinic and pet parents will be asked to standby for a phone consultation with the veterinarian.  We anticipate most appointments to take 30 minutes.  Please contact us for further information.
