Veterinary Pain Management
The field of veterinary pain management has been an area of intense interest and progress over the last decade. There are two basic types of pain: acute pain & chronic pain. Acute pain is the type that abruptly begins to hurt. It may be due to trauma, surgery, etc. Chronic pain is pain that has been present over a longer period of time (i.e. – arthritis, back pain, etc.). We believe that a multimodal approach to pain management is the most effective, and can tailor a protocol to your individual pet to manage its pain. See the tabs to the left for further information on each type of pain.
