How to Recognize When Your Pet Is in Pain
Pain Management, Prevention, and Monitoring
When you bring your pet to Adobe Veterinary Center with concerns of pain, our veterinarian will first perform a thorough physical examination and provide diagnostic tests, if necessary, to determine an exact diagnosis of the injury or illness causing your pet’s pain. If your pet is in acute pain we will provide treatment to stabilize your pet’s condition and reduce your pet’s pain. Once we determine the exact cause, we work with pet owners to devise a comprehensive treatment plan designed to address the underlying medical issue to stop pain at its source. For pets diagnosed with chronic illnesses and chronic pain, we help pet owners adjust their pets’ lifestyles and diets, while providing additional strategies for pain management. Pets with chronic disease might need to visit the veterinary office more frequently to monitor their conditions and to periodically adjust medications, if necessary.
