Long-Term Pain Medication

Among the various services offered, one crucial aspect of their commitment to animal well-being is the provision of long-term pain management for pets.

Understanding that pets, like humans, can experience chronic pain due to various conditions such as arthritis, orthopedic issues, or other chronic illnesses, Best Friends Veterinary Center takes a proactive approach to enhance their quality of life. Long-term pain management is a specialized service that involves the continuous monitoring and treatment of chronic pain to ensure pets can lead comfortable and fulfilling lives.

The veterinary team at Best Friends Veterinary Center recognizes that managing chronic pain in pets requires a tailored approach. Each animal is unique, and the clinic prioritizes personalized care plans to address individual needs. The process begins with a thorough examination to diagnose the underlying cause of the pain accurately. This may involve imaging studies, blood tests, and a detailed discussion with pet owners about their observations regarding their pet’s behavior.

Once the source of the pain is identified, the veterinary team works closely with pet owners to develop a comprehensive long-term pain management plan. This plan may include a combination of medication, physical therapy, and lifestyle modifications. Medications prescribed are carefully chosen based on their efficacy and the specific needs of the pet. The goal is not just to alleviate pain but also to improve mobility, enhance overall well-being, and slow down the progression of the underlying condition.

Best Friends Veterinary Center places a strong emphasis on educating pet owners about the importance of consistency in administering medications and following the prescribed treatment plan.
