Pain Management

Whether your pet is recovering from a surgery, injury, or illness, Baldwin Animal Hospital has pain management programs to help ease the pain and discomfort of both chronic and acute conditions.

Acute & Chronic Pain

Pain can either be acute or chronic. Acute pain is sudden, usually resulting from a surgery, injury, or infection. Although usually temporary, acute pain can be very uncomfortable and limit your pet’s mobility. Chronic pain develops slowly over time, and is long lasting. Common causes of chronic pain include arthritis, cancer, dental disease, ear and skin disease. Pain from chronic conditions is especially troublesome as it can go on for a long period of time.

Detecting Pain in Your Pet

Sometimes animals instinctively hide their pain, or it can be difficult to recognize the signs of pain. It’s important to look for changes in your pet’s behavior, including any of the following signs:

  • Listlessness or unresponsiveness
  • Whining or whimpering, or persistent barking or meowing
  • Biting or snipping at people
  • Frequent licking or chewing
  • Trouble sleeping or eating
  • Inability to get comfortable
  • Exhibiting behavior that is out of character

If your pet is showing one or more of these signs, he or she may have a medical condition that requires veterinary care as soon as possible. Call us today to schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians to develop the pain management plan that is best for your pet.
