Pain Management

 

At Glendale, an extremely important aspect of animal health and well being is pain management. Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. No animal deserves to suffer with pain, whether it be a result of a surgical procedure or due to a chronic disease, it is only ethical that we should provide excellent pain relief. Recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care.

Providing appropriate pain management is morally and ethically the right thing to do, but also speeds up recovery times and minimizes complications. Through a combination of epidurals, local and regional and intra-articular (joint) blocks, narcotics, NSAIDS and laser therapy, we have placed a strong emphasis on pain management.  Also we use a surgical laser instead of a scalpel to cauterize the pet’s nerve endings, which minimizes surgical pain.

Rest assured that when you bring your pet to us, you are placing them in very caring hands. When an animals’ pain is treated, it drastically improves their quality of life.
