Pet Pain Management / Rehabilitation
We want our patients to have the very best quality of life that they can and our pain management services can help pets live life to the fullest!
Working to help our patients find freedom from pain is important to us.
Laser Therapy (Class 4 Laser)
A therapeutic laser utilizes photobiomodulation, so that cells are able to convert light energy into cellular energy. In doing this, it enhances the body’s ability to heal itself by increasing blood flow to bring the cells what they need and remove waste that may be causing damage. This process reduces inflammation and the pain associated with it in a benign way. It is often layered onto a treatment plan as an additional non-drug therapeutic modality.
Rehab Therapy Modalities
Rehabilitation therapy offers additional, non-invasive modalities to reduce pain, improve muscle mass, improve mobility, and extend a pet’s overall quality of life. As one of our doctors is working on obtaining their Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner (CCRP) qualifications, we intend to enhance the services offered. If you are interested, we are happy to provide recommendations on various stretches and exercises that meet your pet’s needs. We can also consult on various modalities to use in conjunction with these services to help improve your pet’s comfort. As this service evolves we hope to layer on additional options for our valued clients.
Disease-Modifying Osteoarthritis Drugs (DMOADs)
Osteoarthritis is a joint disease characterized by the degeneration of joint cartilage and underlying bone. Symptoms of osteoarthritis typically set in over the course of years, with signs of pain or stiffness being the most prevalent. Disease-modifying osteoarthritis drugs (DMOAD) work to prevent further deterioration of the affected cartilage and potentially restoring it to some degree. Please contact our office for a consultation on the best DMOAD treatment options for your pet.
