Pain Management and Control
There are strong reasons to support the belief that cats and dogs feel pain similarly to people. Animals, however, tend to be less demonstrative about pain than people. Please talk to one of our veterinarians about how to recognize the signs of pain. Some forms of pain, such as acute post-surgical pain, are straightforward to predict and address. Other forms of pain can be difficult to identify. For instance, low-grade pain like that associated with arthritis and dental disease can escape some pet owner’s attention. It is imperative that we acknowledge and address pain in all forms. Be it acute post-surgical or chronic low-grade pain we make every effort to alleviate it and improve your pet’s quality of life as part of our commitment to your pet’s well-being.
