Pet Pain Management in Chattanooga, TN

Have you ever considered how varied pain can appear in animals? For instance, a dog with chronic arthritis could show extremely mild signals of pain that, unless you know what to look for, can go unrecognized. Fortunately, our team of sympathetic, caring experts is knowledgeable in identifying pain symptoms in animals and creating a customized plan for treating our patient’s suffering.

Pet Pain Management

One of the most challenging areas of animal healthcare is pain management. Our pets cannot describe the location or degree of pain they feel. In fact, due to ancestral traits, our pets will hide their pain from us because of the predator/prey instinct they possess. As a pet owner, you must watch for identifiable clues or changes in your pet’s mood or behavior. Some signs of pain can include lack of appetite, social withdrawal, whimpering, limping, and in some extreme cases: aggression. Fortunately, the veterinarians at Highway 58 Animal Hospital are well-versed in recognizing the signs and symptoms of pain.

Whether your pet suffers from a chronic pain condition or illness, or if the condition is temporary, like an injury, or from a surgical procedure, adequately managing pain reduces emotional stress, which in turn helps to promote healing. Our veterinarians at Highway 58 Animal Hospital will work with you and develop an individualized plan for managing pain in your pet.

From routine procedures (such as spays or dental cleanings), to more advanced medical treatments (such as bone surgeries), to chronically painful conditions (such as arthritis or back pain), we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient. We will also help you recognize signs of pain in your pet so that we can modify his or her pain management plan when necessary.

At Highway 58 Animal Hospital, recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of our quality, compassionate patient care. We don’t take pain management for granted and will employ all our skills to help ensure your pet’s comfort, well-being, and complete recovery.
