VCA Stoney Creek Animal Hospital

Pain Management

Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. We have a full complement of oral and injectable medications for the management of post-operative pain and the treatment of acute or chronic pain due to conditions such as arthritis.

In addition to pain relief drugs, we also use supplements such as omega fatty acids and glucosamine along with prescription diets to treat and relieve orthopedic pain.

Laser therapy is also used to treat many types of inflammation and pain ranging from post surgical pain to arthritis to wound care.
