Animal Pain Awareness –
It’s very difficult when we know that our loved ones are in pain, and our pets are no different. There are lots of reasons why a cherished pet might be in pain and having pain awareness can help reduce stress for you and your pet. Certain disease states and post-operative states have a lot of pain involved. Arthritis, degenerative joint disease or hip dysplasia and post-surgery healing may have varying levels of pain associated with them. Just like humans, long term use of drugs can take a toll on mood and other body systems. There are some other options to help long-term pain.
First at TLC Pet Hospital we practice Fear Free Veterinarian visits. Our team is trained in special techniques to keep you and your pet from having a stressful visit.
We also have some great therapies for pain. The K-Laser is a great tool to help reduce inflammation and pain.
