The practice of high-quality veterinary medicine focuses on the entire patient – from medical issues that affect physical functioning, to emotional and psychological issues that affect well-being. Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and can have a detrimental effect on a patient’s well-being and state of mind. That’s why pain management is among our primary considerations when we are treating a cat for any medical condition.
From routine procedures (such as a spays or dental cleanings), to more advanced medical treatments (such as abdominal surgeries or cancer treatments), to chronically painful conditions (such as arthritis or pancreatitis), we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient. We will also help you recognize signs of pain in your cat so that we can modify his or her pain management plan when necessary.
Recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of quality, compassionate patient care. We don’t take pain management for granted and will employ all our skills to help ensure your cat’s comfort, well-being, and full recovery.
