We all know that pain hurts, but pain also has other detrimental effects on your pet’s body. Pain slows healing, decreases activity, causes behavioral changes (such as aggression, stress and anxiety, and depression). Pain worsens diseases like arthritis and potentially some cancers. It interferes with the bond between you and your pet.
At Hospital de Animales Perla del Sur, we practice the most up-to-date pain management protocol. For acute and chronic conditions, we use all our available and safe resources, including NSAIDS (non-steroidal medications) and oral and injectable analgesics for the complete comfort of your pet.
