If there is any type of acute pain that your cat or dog is experiencing, it’s always best that we find a way to manage it and if possible eradicate it. It’s important that we make sure to take the time to start with diagnostic testing, evaluate the screen and then determine options. Finding the best course of action for your pet’s pain can seem daunting, but that’s why we’re here to help. Whether your cat has an injury or your dog has a disease, we offer a variety of treatment options. Laser therapy is often used to help treat pain, while avoiding anesthesia or post-operative discomfort. It’s used on a variety of diagnoses and serves to treat and reduce the risk of infection. The best part is that the process is actually painless and relaxing for our furry patients.
Chronic pain is less intense and sudden than acute pain, but can be much more long-lasting and sometimes more difficult to treat. Chronic pain often comes from ongoing ailments, including arthritis, hip dysplasia, and more. It’s more frequently associated with older pets, though young and otherwise healthy pets can also experience chronic pain.
We treat every instance of chronic pain as its own individual case, coming up with a plan that’s right for your pet’s specific and unique needs to help improve their quality of life today and in the future.
