Pain Management at Bayview Animal Hospital
Preventing and managing pain in your pet is a top priority at Bayview Animal Hospital. For all surgical procedures and the treatment of chronic conditions (such as cancer or arthritis), we help you develop a pain management plan that is tailored to your pet’s individual needs.
Watching for Pain in Your Pet
Animals instinctively hide their pain, so owners should be aware of common indicators such as:
- Excessive licking or biting
- Howling, whining, or other abnormal vocal cues
- Loss of appetite
Some behavioral changes may also indicate pain, such as growling or outright aggression. If your pet demonstrates any of these changes or has experienced a recent trauma, please contact us immediately for an examination.
