Compassionate Pain Management for Pets

Pets feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. Veterinary medical studies have shown that effective pain management speeds healing and increases quality of life. We assess and manage pain for all procedures and medical conditions.

Changes in behavior, such as growling or overt aggression, may also be indicators of pain. If your pet displays any of these signs or has experienced a recent trauma, please contact us immediately for an examination.

At Hendersonville Veterinary Hospital, we’re not just committed to recognizing and alleviating pain in animals; we’re dedicated to doing so with the utmost care and expertise. Our approach to pain management is multifaceted. We begin by thoroughly assessing your pet’s condition and understanding their specific needs. Based on this assessment, we develop a customized pain management plan that may include medication, physical therapy, and other interventions.

What sets us apart is our attention to detail. We closely monitor your pet’s response to pain management, ensuring that the treatment plan is effective and making any necessary adjustments. We also emphasize education, equipping pet parents with the knowledge and tools to support their pet’s comfort and well-being at home.
