Pain Management

Though we never want to see a beloved pet in pain, accidents happen and diseases develop as our pets age which can cause pain. We here at MVC are always increasing our knowledge of what causes pain as well as the current methods and medical ways to alleviate that pain.

Pets are not small humans, and some medications which you might take for day to day pain can be deadly to a pet---so it is important to never give your dog or cat any medication without first consulting one of our doctors. Occasionally, we need to do procedures that we know may increase pain--though the end goal is to minimize this pain. Here at MVC, we offer a variety of pain relief (analgesia)options. By minimizing the pain following procedures like surgery (spay, neuter, dentistry, mass removals or radiographs), we can help speed your pet's recovery.
