Pain management is indicated for numerous patients suffering with various painful conditions.
One of the most common conditions where we implement a long-term pain management plan is for patients suffering with arthritis, an extremely painful, inflammatory condition affecting the joints. Arthritis can occur due to old age, and wear and tear or sometimes post injury to a joint. It is not uncommon in some younger patients also.
The good news is, with a good pain management plan your pet can live a happy and full-filling life.
There are numerous treatment options. We can prescribe daily medication, either tablets or an oral liquid. We can also give courses of injectable pain relief as required. We will advise you on which is more suitable for your pet.
A pain management plan can be advised for conditions other than arthritis, cancer patients for example or patients suffering with post-operative pain or discomfort.
Where a patient is on long-term medication, we usually advise regular blood testing to ensure the liver and kidneys are in good health. We can then alter the medication prescribed, if thought necessary.
