Pain management

From orthopaedic disease to soft tissue pain associated with injury or surgery, there are a wide range of situations than warrant pain relief in dogs. As in humans, there are a range of approaches that may be taken, although some types of human medication can prove toxic, the use of appropriate prescribed veterinary anti-inflammatory and analgesic medications (painkillers) plays a vital role in relieving pain in our canine patients. Always consult your veterinary practice if you suspect your dog may be in pain.
