When it comes to controlling pain in your pet, you want veterinarians with an integrated, global approach. At Gentle Care Animal Hospital, pain management is provided with a blend of integrative and traditional veterinary techniques and treatments.
Minimizing or eliminating pain allows medical treatments to work more efficiently, by reducing the stress response that can block the body’s efforts to heal. Our veterinarians are highly trained in the most current medications used to manage pain, from sedation and anesthesia to medications for long-term control of chronic pain. In addition, we believe it is our responsibility to treat every animal—domestic or wild—in a compassionate and humane manner. By reducing or eliminating pain we support pets and encouragement pet owners who are caring for an ill or injured pet.
Many pet discomforts may be addressed with the use of integrative medicine. Your Gentle Care veterinarian will determine the best approach for your pet considering breed or type, age, general health, medical history, and mobility.
Intergrative modalities we may offer for pain management include:
Chiropractic—Skeletal and joint adjustments
Acupuncture—The use of thin, needles inserted at specific points in the body
Herbal therapy—Using specific herbs to relieve symptoms
Nutritional therapy—Supporting overall health with vitamins and minerals
Schedule a consultation with your Gentle Care veterinarian to protect your pet from needless suffering. Remember OLD is not in and of its self an illness. Excess body weight, stiffness, “slowing down”, etc. are not necessarily a requirement for “old”.
