Pet Pain Management for Dogs and Cats
Seeing your pet in pain is one of the hardest parts of being a pet parent. Perhaps your senior cat is less inclined to jump up on the kitchen counter, or maybe after playing fetch your dog is now favoring one of his/her legs. Sometimes an event such as a fall or a foray into the kitchen trash triggers an episode of pain, but oftentimes, the change can be gradual as your pet ages.

Why Pain Management
Because our pets may communicate their pain to us in subtle ways, observing and examining your pet in the security of his/her own home can be a helpful tool. Anxious or excited dogs are very adept at hiding their symptoms in a new place, such as a veterinary hospital's exam room, and cats especially are prone to freezing in place when stressed or afraid. Being able to watch your pup or kitty move about freely in their environment can give us a better idea about their mobility and comfort level. Some sources of pain may not be immediately obvious. An in-home physical examination gives us more information about the origin of your pet’s discomfort and helps guide our decisions about diagnostics and medications to relieve pain.
When you book a Home Visit, a BetterVet veterinary doctor and nurse will arrive at your home ready to discuss, observe, and examine your pet in her comfort zone. Many modalities exist for diagnosing and managing pain in our pets. Your BetterVet veterinary team is available to guide you through your options and help keep your pup or cat happy and pain-free.
