Pain ManagementPain Management at HEAL

Whether acute or chronic, pain can greatly diminish a pet’s quality of life.  The goals of appropriate pain management are to reduce the discomfort and stress that severely uncomfortable conditions cause.

Whether it is acute pain post- surgery or chronic pain, such as severe osteoarthritis, HEAL can create a pain management plan for your pet.

We use a variety of modalities to help your pet.  The choice of treatment is based solely on your pet’s needs and tolerance.

Pain management options include:

  • Pharmacologic therapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Dry needling
  • Physical manipulations (such as massage and stretching)
  • Weight-supported exercise
  • Nutraceutical support
