Pain can be acute or chronic and may result from a variety of causes, including arthritis, injuries, foreign bodies, internal diseases and cancer. Keeping your pet pain free is crucial to maintaining his or her quality of life. At Sierra Madre Animal Hospital, we put pain management as a top priority. We use a multimodal approach to pain management and create a pain management protocol that is best for your individual pet. Effective pain management may include anti-inflammatory medication, oral analgesics, local and general anesthesia.
