Pain Management with our Glen Allen Veterinarian

Cat owner playing with her cat

Our pets are an important part of our families and it can be distressing to see them in pain. If your pet has been injured or suffers from chronic pain due to a medical condition, the staff at Short Pump Animal Hospital is here to provide the veterinary care that they need to feel better! There are several medicinal options available for your pet, both prescription and non-prescription. In addition to medication, we recommend that your pet maintain a healthy weight level to minimize the effect that pain has on their body. Our team is here to work with you to create an effective pain management plan that can enable your pet to continue to live a full and active life!

Comprehensive and Compassionate Care for Pets in the Glen Allen Area

In addition to medications, we find that many of our four-legged patients respond well to natural treatments. Additionally, we offer comprehensive nutritional guidance and diet and weight maintenance programs that can help your pet feel better. An overweight pet can have a more difficult time recovering from injury and extra pounds can put an additional and unnecessary strain on their bodies. 

We believe that exercise is an important part of every pet's well-being and encourage all owners to keep their pets active and socialized. Even when they aren't feeling well, pets still require activity and mental stimulation along with some extra rest. If you are wary of giving your pet prescription medications, we can recommend some supplements such as glucosamine that can help to relieve pain that is caused by joint disorders and arthritis.  Acupuncture is another effective alternative treatment that can be effective alone or when combined with more traditional medicines.
