Pain management encompasses both chronic pain, such as osteoarthritis, and pain induced by surgical and medical procedures. Our goal is to keep our patients as pain free as possible in all cases. We have many strategies for controlling pain. These can include oral medications, injections, constant infusions, nerve blocks, and regional analgesia.
Pain management begins with finding the source of the pain, and then using our diagnostic tools to confirm the cause. Once we have established these parameters, we can determine the best method to treat the problem. We combine this medical diagnosis with a thorough understanding of your pet’s lifestyle and specific medical needs. This allows us to design an individualized pain management plan for your pet.
