Compassionate Pain Management

for Pets

Your pet’s comfort is essential to his or her well-being. Minimizing stress and discomfort is an essential part of the healing process. Northpark Animal Hospital utilizes a state-of-the-art, comprehensiveĀ approach to minimizing pain for our patients. This includes a staff that is trained to recognize the sometimes subtle signs of pain in all species.

We employ the latest drugs, surgeries, and other techniques to prevent and treat pain and the associated anxiety. These may include epidurals, local anesthesia, continuous flow medications via IV pump, and pre- and post-op analgesics and anti-inflammatories.

For pets with chronic painful conditions such as arthritis, our veterinarians will discuss options for long-term pain management, which may include prescription analgesics and anti-inflammatories, problem-specific nutrition, and physical therapy.

Contact our office to discuss ways we might enhance your pet’s health, comfort, and well-being.
