Berks Animal Emergency & Referral Center: Pet Pain Management
Berks Animal Emergency and Referral Center strives to provide outstanding health care for your pet. We have established pet pain management protocols for both surgical pain and chronic pain to keep your pet comfortable. We use a comprehensive approach to pain management, with the goal of a pain-free pet.
Surgical Pain Management
If your pet is experiencing trauma, injury, or illness, then surgery might be required. Our veterinary team is dedicated to providing a pain-free surgical experience for your pet. We use the latest pain management techniques to reduce anxiety and keep your pet comfortable before, during, and after surgery.
Your pet’s pain management protocol begins prior to surgery and continues through your pet’s recovery. Continuous delivery of IV pain medications is used routinely at our center.
We will prescribe additional pain medication to give to your pet at home, if necessary. Our in-house pharmacy makes it convenient to fill your pet’s pain medication.
Disease Pain Management
Chronic diseases, such as arthritis, cause pain to your pet. We recommend a comprehensive approach to pain management including proper nutrition, medications, weight control, exercise, and joint supplements. In most cases, chronic disease pain management will be coordinated with your pet’s family veterinarian.
Please contact us to schedule an appointment or to discuss any questions you may have regarding your pet’s pain management program.
