Pain Management

Jun 12 2022

Pain management is our top priority

Pets experience pain just like humans do. The AAHA guidelines encourage veterinarians to use pain assessment as the fourth vital sign (along with temperature, pulse and respiration).

We use a multimodal approach including pre-emptive analgesic techniques (with multiple pharmacological agents) and multimodality postoperative pain management (pain medications, Fentanyl patch, local nerve blocks, chiropractic therapy and heat and cold therapy) to ensure your pet enjoys a pain-free life.

Some common pain-relief medications which our vets may recommend for your pet can include:

  • Opioids 

  • Corticosteroids

  • Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)

This place was amazing! I called and was able to get in within 40 minutes of my call which was 2 hours before they closed too! I called at least 8 other Emergency Vets before calling them and I would go back in a heartbeat! The techs and DVM were wonderful and so caring. Alice, my 16-year-old cat, is happy to be back home.
