Veterinary medicine has made great strides in the past few years in the control of pain in our pets.
We have several types of drugs at our disposal for the control of surgical pain and discomfort. Every surgery patient at Southpointe Veterinary Hospital has a pre-operative plan for pain management. The patient is also closely monitored throughout surgery and recovery for indications of pain. If needed, additional drugs are administered.
Our animal companions can be quite good at masking pain and discomfort. If your pet is slow to rise after lying down, limps, or is not as active as previously, it can be a sign of arthritis.
We have safe, easy to administer drugs that can make your pet much more comfortable. You will be surprised at the difference.
