Pain Management

We make pain management a top priority!! Studies have shown that pain relief may speed up the recovery process from surgery, injury or illness. As importantly, pain relief may help your dog live longer just by reducing stress and increasing an overall sense of well-being.

Whether your pet is dealing with acute pain from an injury or infection or chronic pain from arthritis, cancer or other age related disease, keeping them free of pain is crucial to maintaining their quality of life.
In our practice we use a multi-pronged approach to pain management that includes anti-inflammatories, opioid drugs, local anesthetics, general anesthetics, and even epidural anesthesia to effectively combat pain at every level.

Additionally, we are proud to add Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioners (CCRP), Dr. James Herrington and Leah Shelton R.V.T. to our Pain Management team. Their advance training adds another layer to our pain management practice which includes thermotherapy, cryotherapy, hydrotherapy, cold laser therapy, core strengthening, muscle building exercises and coordination exercises, massage and much more. Each technique is used to increase function and mobility of joints and muscles.
