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 for Our Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family

Effective June 25th, 2020

Even though we have resumed full services and restrictions are starting to ease in our region, the coronavirus is still present and a serious concern. For that reason, we feel it is in the best interests of our team and clients to continue curbside care for the foreseeable future.

This means we will continue to limit access to our hospital to Woodley Gardens team members and client pets only, and our doctors will communicate with you via ZOOM conference during the appointment, or on the phone right after your pet’s appointment. If you use the ZOOM app, you can see your pet during the appointment. You can view our complete curbside protocol here.

We will also continue to maintain rigorous cleaning protocols, strict hand-washing procedures, and a mandatory stay-at-home policy for any staff member who is feeling ill. Temperatures are taken before each shift, and we require masks for all staff as well.

We ask that if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 that you find alternative transportation for your pet and alert us that he or she is coming from a COVID-19 positive household.

Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation, and please check our Facebook page for timely updates.

Stay safe and well, everyone!

The Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Team
