Multi Model Approach Pain Management Programs

A painful pet is no fun. Whether it is sudden onset injury causing the pain or long term chronic pain from prior injury or arthritis we can provide options to help. We offer several different modalities to help manage pain depending on your interest. Together we can come up with a plan that includes individual methods or a more aggressive multi-model approach to keeping your pet comfortable into old age.

  • Traditional medications
    • This may include NSAIDs and other medications given to reduce inflammation and control pain. Given on a consistent basis, these medications can help keep pets very comfortable for a long time.
    • These medications can have effects on the body such as to the liver, kidneys and GI tract in the form of ulcers. We do require periodic testing to monitor for these problems shortly after starting medications and usually every 6 months after.
  • Supplements
    • Not all supplements are created equal! We carry only supplements made by a company that has as high standards as we do that will only provide pharmaceutical grade ingredients.
  • Joint specific diets that combine supplements for joint support with nutrition that promotes lean muscle give us one more tool we can use to fight pain.
  • Cold laser therapy is a relatively new service that can be used to stimulate cell regeneration and reduce inflammation increasing mobility and comfort.
  • Injectable medications that are used in a protocol to support joint health.
  • Acupuncture therapy can be a wonderful tool to help animals with mobility issues.
  • Herbal medications
  • Chiropractic adjustments to re-align your pet’s body.
