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.
