Pain Management

Our goal is to improve health and relieve suffering. Pain impacts quality of life and diminishes the body’s ability to heal from sickness, trauma, or surgery. We are fortunate to practice veterinary medicine in a time when pain management for animals is recognized as basic care. There are many options available to relieve pain, including medications, surgery, physical therapy, and weight management.
