Pain Management at Companion Animal Hospital
Whether the pain is from illness, injury, or recuperating from surgery, our goal is to manage, minimize, or eliminate your pet’s pain. At Companion Animal Hospital, we will provide the highest quality care to alleviate your pet’s discomfort. We will also teach you methods and pain relief options to use at home.
Signs of Pain
Animals instinctively hide pain, so it’s important to be aware of common symptoms. This includes:
- Excessive licking or biting
- Loss of appetite
- Reluctance to move or jump
- Howling, whining, or other abnormal vocal cues
- Changes in behavior (e.g., growling or overt aggression)
If your pet displays any of these signs or has experienced a recent trauma, please contact us immediately for an examination.
