If your dog or cat is recovering from a recent surgery or illness, we are here to provide pain management programs to ease your pet’s pain and discomfort. At The Bluffs Pet Clinic, we have developed pain management programs designed to treat both acute and chronic health conditions.
Acute & Chronic Pain
Pain can either be acute or chronic. Acute pain is sudden, typically resulting from a surgery, injury, or infection. Although usually acute pain does not indicate a long-term condition, it can still be uncomfortable and even limit your pet’s mobility. Chronic pain develops slowly over time, and is often linked with long-term conditions. Common causes of chronic pain include arthritis, cancer, dental disease, and diseases of the skin and ear. The pain caused by chronic conditions can be especially troublesome as the effects are long lasting.
Recognizing Pain in Your Pet
Many times it can be difficult to recognize the signs of pain since an animal’s first instinct is to hide their pain. That’s why it’s important to look for changes in your pet’s behavior, including any of the following signs:
If your pet is showing any of these signs, he or she may have a medical condition that requires immediate veterinary care. Call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians to find the pain management plan that is best for your pet.
I really feel like everytime I bring my pets in everyone makes me feel like my babies are their babies makes me feel super comfortable with the care that is provided. Not just another appointment you need to see.
I love how friendly everyone is, the moment you walk in the door you feel welcome. The care you have given my pets is exceptional, having alternative therapies and ways of treating animals is very important to me. Let's not leave out your outstanding communication with making follow up phone calls to see how my pet is doing and of course the compassion you show after the loss of a pet, the little extras you do mean a lot.
Bluff's pet clinic has always been great, honest, and genuinely caring. We moved away a few years ago and switched to a different vet. Well, it was then really realized how great Buffs is. There was no comparison. Bluffs is far superior. We have returned to Bluffs's and it's worth the drive!
I was so happy with the care Max got at The Bluffs. Your team is fantastic! Steve was fabulous and took a liking to Max right away, a true animal lover! They did not rush us and gave us many suggestions about him not taking to a litter pan (Good luck for us with that) He is getting neutered on November 28th. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you so much!
I love how everyone interacts with my pet. They were so considerate of my feelings as well. Our previous vet clinic did not really interact with my dog. They just treated her like a piece of equipment that needed to be fixed. It was so impersonal. For this reason, we go to the Bluffs Clinic, where we feel understood and cared for.
