Years ago, veterinarians thought animals felt pain differently from people, but fortunately we now understand that your furry family members feel pain in much the same way people do. Understanding this fact, Dr. Ivy Heath uses pain preventative medications in all of the surgeries performed at Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital.
Pain management medications are medically-appropriate in many aspects of veterinary medicine. Trauma, surgical procedures and long-term painful conditions such as osteoarthritis and cancer often warrant medication to keep pets comfortable. If your pet is facing a painful condition or surgery, contact Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital, and allow our compassionate veterinarian to take appropriate action to keep your pet as comfortable and pain-free as possible.
