Pain Management

Marina Animal Clinic offers our pet patients pain management services. Pet pain management includes various procedures, medications, and therapeutics to relieve a pet’s suffering or pain. Our veterinarians provide pain management for pets recovering from an injury, a surgical procedure, or an illness. Pain management is beneficial to the animal because it improves the recovery process and reduces pet stress. It can also increase the quality of life for an animal and may lengthen an animal’s life span.

Early intervention is important when it comes to managing your pet’s pain.

Some common signs of pain in your pet may include:

  • Limping
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Vocalization
  • Change in temperament or behavior
  • Licking a specific area
  • Change in bathroom habits
  • Panting
  • Appearance of the third eyelid
  • Hiding

If you have any questions regarding pain management for your pet, please ask one of our veterinarians or staff members, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
