Pain Management

Pain Management

Keeping patients pain free is of paramount importance at Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care. This may be short term after an elective surgery or accidental wound treatment, or more long term for conditions such as arthritis or even cancer. At each appointment, every measure is taken to address your pet’s overall condition, evaluate them for pain and provide pain relief on an acute or chronic basis, as needed.

Helpful Resources

Unfortunately, dogs and cats cannot specifically tell us that they are in pain, and where it hurts. You can be their advocate by learning how to evaluate if they are in pain at home with this helpful Pain Management Resource. If you familiarize yourself with these guidelines and determine your pet is in pain, please call the hospital or click here to set up an appointment to discuss this with a veterinarian.



COVID-19 Update – Effective May 7th, 2020

Dear Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family,

With the new order issued by Governor Hogan, we are now able to resume full services again, including wellness visits and elective procedures such as spays, neuters, and dental cleanings. In order to keep our valued clients and caring team healthy and do our part in social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we will continue to follow our adjusted protocols for the hospital.

We will continue to only allow pets into the hospital. Clients will have the opportunity to Zoom video conference into their pet’s exam, or the doctor will call you on the phone after the doctor has completed the examination if you do not want to use Zoom. You may view the complete protocol here.

We already have rigorous cleaning protocols in place for the hospital, and we have increased the frequency of these cleanings as well. All team members wear masks and gloves, and also wash their hands following CDC recommendations with soap and water before and after each exam. Anyone feeling ill for any reason stays home, and all team member temperatures are taken prior to each shift. The additional measures taken are for the safety of our clientele and our team so that we can continue to serve the needs of our patients and our community that we love. We highly recommend for clients to wear masks and ask if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to find your pet alternative transportation and alert staff that your pet is coming from a COVID-19 positive household. Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe everyone!

Best,
The Team and Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care
