Pain Management

Pets can experience the same sensations of pain as we humans do. Some types of pain are chronic, such as the pain caused by certain degenerative medical conditions, like arthritis or hip dysplasia. Additionally, pets can experience bouts of acute or sudden pain following an injury or surgery. Regardless of the type of pain, experiencing such discomfort can greatly affect their quality of life. Animal Hospital of Ludington offers a wide range of pain management services to help your pet feel better.

Some of the common signs that your pet may be in pain include:

  • Behavioral Changes
  • Aggression
  • Hiding
  • Trembling
  • Lameness or Limping
  • Restlessness
  • Excessive Panting
  • Dilation of the Eyes
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Self-Mutilation

If you believe your companion is experiencing pain or discomfort, contact us right away. We can conduct a thorough exam and run diagnostic testing to determine what’s causing the problem, and develop an appropriate plan to address it. Pain management may include physical therapy, medication, laser therapy or any combination of these. Let us get to the bottom of your pet’s pain issues and help them live a more comfortable, happy life.
