Your pet’s comfort is essential to his or her well-being. Minimizing stress and discomfort is an essential part of the healing process. Four Corners Veterinary Hospital employs a state of the art, comprehensive approach to minimizing pain in our patients.
In our hospital, this includes a staff that is trained to recognize subtle signs of pain in all pet species. We employ surgical and medical techniques to minimize, prevent, and treat pain. These include laser surgery, pre-surgical analgesia, continuous flow analgesia, local anesthesia, and nerve blocks.
For pets with chronic painful conditions, your veterinarian will discuss options for long term pain management. Treatment modalities include physical therapy, prescription analgesics, anti-inflammatory medication, joint support medication and nutritional advice.
