Pet Pain Management

Compassionate Pet Pain Management

At The Paw Patch Veterinary Hospital, recognizing and alleviating pain in your pet is truly the foundation that our compassionate, quality veterinary practice is built upon. We take great pride in our advanced pet pain management program as we intensely focus on enhancing and maintaining our knowledge and skills in this area on a daily basis. Our extensive studies and vast training in veterinary pain management only reiterate the importance and seriousness of such subject matter to our practice, further ensuring your pet’s comfort, wellbeing, and full recovery.

Whether treating pain for routine procedures, such as spays, neuters, and dental cleanings; more advanced medical treatments, such as bone surgeries and cancer treatment; or even chronically painful conditions like arthritis, we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management customized to the individual needs of your pet. We offer a variety of options, strategically chosen on a case-by-case basis, including:

  • Veterinary drugs and medications
  • Small animal acupuncture
  • Cold laser therapy
  • Pet laser surgery (in the event of an operation, laser surgery is a more pain conscious, beneficial alternative to the scalpel)

Signs Indicating My Pet May Be in Pain

Some animals display subtle signs of pain that may be difficult to recognize. If your pet exhibits any of the following behaviors, symptoms, or signs of pain, please call us as soon as possible to schedule an appointment. We will thoroughly assess your pet’s pain and devise an individualized pain management plan formulated to optimize the comfort and wellbeing of your cherished companion.

Some indicators of pet pain may include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Sudden weight fluctuation
  • Hiding in corners
  • Reluctance to be touched
  • Abnormal craving for affection and attention
  • Biting or unusual aggressive behavior
  • Whimpering, meowing, crying excessively or during certain movements
