Pain Control & Management
in Addison, Texas
Pain management in animals can be challenging because they can’t tell you what hurts. You must learn how to interpret their sounds the same way new parents learn a baby’s cry. Sometimes, an animal’s natural instinct is to disguise their pain so as not to show vulnerability to predators. This can cause you to be unaware of your pet’s pain.
We suggest watching for the following signs of pain:
- Lack of appetite
- Hiding under furniture
- Whimpering or crying
- Shaking or trembling
- Avoiding the use of one or more limbs
- Standing or walking in a hunched posture
- Marked decrease in activity level
- Behavior changes
Our goal is to return your pet to a pain-free life
The veterinarians at Isla Veterinary Boutique Hospital spend considerable time interviewing you and observing your pet when you bring them to our clinic in Addison, Texas 75001 to determine what could be causing the pain. We will create a customized pain management plan and prescribe medication or non-pharmaceutical options to control and eliminate pain.
