Recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of quality, compassionate patient care. It is one of the vital signs that are monitored in our patients along with temperature, pulse, respiration and blood pressure. Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. From routine procedures (such as a spay or dental cleanings), to more advanced medical treatments (such as bone surgeries or cancer treatments), to chronically painful conditions (such as arthritis or back pain), we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient.
We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in pets is the essence of good patient care and therefore we will help you recognize those signs as well. This will help us together in modifying his or her pain management plan when necessary to provide comfort, well being and a full recovery.
