Our staff has a priority to prevent your pet from pain.

The issue of pain management is of great concern to both pet owners and veterinarians today. As in human medicine, the knowledge of mechanisms and consequences of pain has been elevated to their proper level of importance.

Our facility has a variety of medications available to manage your pet’s pain before, during, and after surgery. All animals having surgical procedures will be administered pain medications here at the hospital and may be discharged with pain medications to continue at home.

Chronic pain (from arthritis and other degenerative conditions) may be a more difficult type of pain to control. Our veterinarians stay current on the most recent advances in pain management to help pick a program that will benefit your pet’s pain.

Should you have any questions or concerns about our philosophy at DCAH regarding pain management, the doctors and staff are available to discuss these at any time.
