Preventing or Eliminating Pet Pain
with Medication & Therapy

Pet Pain Management

The professionals of Animal Care Center and K-9 Rehabilitation take special care to prevent pain where possible and diminish suffering in our pet patients. We employ preventive pain management strategies tailored to the individual needs of your pet.

Pain Management Improves Healing & Enhances Recovery

Studies show that appropriate pain management reduces stress and speeds recovery. Whether your pet is experiencing an acute cause for pain, such as injury, surgery, or dental procedures, or is suffering from a chronic problem, such as arthritis, cancer, or disease, our team takes every step to ensure comfort.

Patients treated with appropriate pain-reducing medications and techniques enjoy a more rapid recovery from illness and an increased healing response after surgery and injury. Preventing and managing pain is the foundation for high quality and compassionate care. Assessment of pain is incorporated into every treatment plan, with strategies to prevent pain in advance when possible and suppress pain both during and after surgical or treatment procedures.

Our Commitment to Excellence

To demonstrate our commitment to our pet patients, we are members of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management (IVAPM). Some of the benefits and values of IVAPM membership include:

  • Excellence in animal care;
  • Raised standards of care regarding pet pain management;
  • Ethical and practical alignment with other professionals; and
  • Access to information, research, and data that reflects the most updated recommendations.

To Promote, Enhance, and Advance Pain Management in Animals

The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management is a multi-disciplinary organization that seeks knowledge related to the biology and clinical treatment of pain in animals, promoting humane, scientific investigation into the biology of animal pain and treatment. Learn more about IVAPM.

Acupuncture & Alternative Therapies

Acupuncture and chiropractic care is growing in popularity, and these are accepted forms of complementary, holistic medicine for animals. Research on conditions such as arthritis in animals has shown that acupuncture and chiropractic care have definite pain-relieving effects.

Our rehabilitation and therapy program offers many alternative therapies designed to reduce pain and promote healing including acupuncture, chiropractic, hydrotherapy, laser therapy, and more. Our alternative and traditional therapies are available to address pet pain at every level, with the goal that no pet ever suffers needlessly.

If you believe your pet is suffering, contact us at once to develop an appropriate pain management plan.


Best, most caring, most educational vist ever...I love this clean facility and fantastic staff. The doctors will go to the ends of the earth to find an answer to your Pet's problem!

This place is AMAZING!!! The Doctors, the staff... What an extraordinary team! Their expertise in the services they offer is incredible, anything that you need, they can take care of!

By far the best Vet we have seen! They remember me and my dog unlike many of the vets offices that I have visited just as frequently.

If I could give more than five stars to the staff at Animal Care Center ... I would! Dr. Pam and her staff are just amazing, which is something I hadn't seen with our previous Vet.

The best and most well-informed vet we've ever been to, we have more confidence in this team than anywhere else we've been. They did miracles for our big dog through the physical therapy and rehabilitation.

This clinic has some of the most high-tech treatment options available, right up to physical therapy for dogs! I have never been to a veterinarian that is as caring and concerned in my life, and I have been to MANY. I am a client for life!

I like that we always learn more about how to be better pet owners. Having had many vets over the past 20 years, I can say that the care for my pets, knowledge of and use of up to date procedures, friendly front desk staff and smart and kind vets make this an excellent place to get the best possible care for your pets.

I will never take my dogs anywhere else! All the doctors are down to earth and truly care about my pets. They have such a comfortable environment from the moment you walk in the front doors.

Dr. Pam is AMAZING and her colleagues and staff are some of the most wonderful caretakers for my furry kids. The atmosphere is welcome to animals and pets of all sizes and ages. I highly recommend the Animal Care Center.

I can't say enough good things about this clinic! The kindness and compassion they showed me far exceeded my expectations.
