Whether your pet is suffering from illness, injury, or post-surgical procedure pain, the staff at Lake City Animal Hospital knows that relieving pain helps in recuperation and promotes healing. From ingestible medications to I.V. therapy, there are several options to help make your pet comfortable and get them on the road to recovery.
Understanding pain management in pets has moved to the forefront of veterinary medicine and education in recent years. Managing your pet’s pain helps promote improved quality of life.
Your pet can’t tell you if they are in pain. Lake City Animal Hospital veterinarians encourage you to be proactive – while some discomfort will be obvious, such as limping, wobbling or whimpering, you may have to trust your intuition if you notice a change in your pet’s mood or behavior, such as resisting being picked up or held, or withdrawing from their usual engagement in activities or with other pets or people. You are the best advocate for your pet in discussing pain management, and we will work with you to come up with the best strategy for managing your pet’s discomfort.
