Pain medications such as NSAIDs are a vital tool for controlling pain in pets. Often, we prescribe pain medication after surgery to help pets through their recovery at home. Additionally, medication can be used in addition to laser therapy to further promote well-being. We take your pet’s entire health into consideration before prescribing pain medications, to minimize the risk of side effects or complications.
Nutritional Supplements & Weight Management
To further aid in pain relief, particularly from joint conditions such as arthritis, nutritional supplements and weight management can play a huge role. Supplements containing natural ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties such as fish oils can further help reduce your pet’s discomfort. Furthermore, extra weight puts undue pressure on your pet’s joints that further exacerbates their condition. Weight management can help them get to a healthy weight which will relieve excess pressure on their joints.
