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.
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.
