Pain management is one of the most important jobs we have as veterinarians. Pain has been proven to slow recovery, and is of course a source of discomfort for our pets. Pain can be a result of disease, injury, or surgery.
We approach pain with a multimodal approach, meaning more than one method of pain relief may be considered. Whether it be utilizing different classes of drugs that work on the pain pathway, or considering acupuncture for pain relief, a targeted plan will be discussed to help keep your pet comfortable. If you are concerned about pain, acute or chronic, or in exploring acupuncture for your pet for pain management, please call us.
