Pets feel pain for many of the same reasons as humans do: infections, dental problems, arthritis, bone disease and cancer. They also feel discomfort following surgical procedures. Unfortunately, unlike humans, they are unable to speak to us about when and where they hurt. You are in the best position to look for the subtle changes in behavior that may indicate your pet is suffering. It's important to stay alert to these signs, because the sooner your dog's pain is diagnosed and treated, the sooner your pet can heal and resume a normal, happy life. If your pet shows one or more of these behaviors and you suspect it may be due to pain, please notify us as soon as you can: vocalization, change in daily habits, self mutilation, excessive grooming, change in posture, aggression, self protection, change in activity level,
At Padonia Veterinary Hospital we provide multimodel and comprehensive pain management system that include appropriate diagnosis and treatment using a combination of proper medication, exercise, and cold-laser (class 3 and 4) therapy.
