The most important task in providing pain relief is to identify the source and intensity of the pet’s pain. The next step is to break the pain cycle in order to restore the animal to normal activities of daily living. We provide multimodal pain management based on a comprehensive physical evaluation and the pet’s metabolic profile. Treatment plans involve joint support, nutritional science, tissue manipulation, acupuncture, as well as physical rehabilitation techniques, in addition to the appropriate pharmaceutical agents needed to accomplish our goals. The human family plays a critical role in the success of any pain management program.
