Pain Relief Is Important
for Your Pet’s Well-Being
Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital provides complete pain management for all of our pet patients, such as when:
- Senior pets slow down and become arthritic
- Dogs and cats need their teeth cleaned or extracted
- A kitten is in the hospital to be spayed
- After an injury, a pet may not want to move around as much as before
Controlling pain is vital to your pet’s well-being and healing in all these situations.
Controlling Pain Before, During, and After Surgery
When your pet needs surgery, Animal Kind veterinarians make sure that he or she is comfortable with pain medications administered before, during, and after the procedure. Pain relief during and after any surgical procedure has a profound impact on how our pet patients feel during recovery. It also significantly affects their attitude and activity once they return home.
Pain Relief for Routine Pet Dental Procedures
Animal Kind’s veterinarians always use pain relief as one important tool to ensure that routine dental care is not painful for your pet. Pain medication, as well as a local dental block, is given to ensure additional pain relief before, during, and after a cleaning or tooth extraction. All dental procedures are performed with general anesthesia to ensure that your pet is comfortable.
Pain Relief for Senior Pets
As your pet ages, joint pain and arthritis may make him or her seem to slow down and be less able to do the things he or she loves. We can help with appropriate ongoing pain relief medications to ease pain and even improve mobility. Dietary supplements, such as chondroitin and glucosamine, can help both cats and dogs with joint problems. Vitamins and Omega 3 fatty acids are important supplements for healthy skin.
If we diagnose your pet with arthritis or cancer, making sure that he or she is comfortable is our highest priority. Our approach that uses several different types of pain relief medicine means we can give low doses of medication while still ensuring that your pet is comfortable and more relaxed.
