Pain can hinder a pet’s ability to heal from injuries, surgeries, or diseases. Effective pain management is often critical in helping an animal return to full health.
We Know Pain When We See It
Many pet owners are blown away by their pet’s ability to communicate with humans. A dog, for instance, may sit outside of a door if they want to go outside. However, sometimes pets are incapable of demonstrating to humans that they are in pain. In some cases, they even try to hide symptoms from their owners. Our staff is comprised of experts at identifying when an animal is in pain, as they are trained to spot the various signs of discomfort.
Everhart Veterinary Hospital performs surgical procedures from spays & neuters to orthopedics. All patients that undergo surgery will receive a combination of pain relievers throughout the procedure. This includes local anesthetics, nerve blocks, epidurals, opioids, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
Our Treatments For Pain Relief
Laser Therapy is the latest technology in non-invasive pain management for your pet. Laser Therapy will increase the release of endorphins which aid in pain relief and reduction of inflammation. The deep, soothing light from the laser targets injured tissues and cells to accelerate repair and growth.
Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points on the body to bring about a healing effect. It stimulates nerves, releases of neurotransmitters and hormones, increases blood flow, and improves relaxation. It also yields relief of pain and disease symptoms.
Scheduling Your Pets Next Appointment
Everhart Veterinary Hospital is always accepting new patients. We always guarantee same day appointments if your animal has any urgent medical issues. This applies to everyone, and it does not matter if your companion is a new patient. If you need urgent care, please call our hospital directly at 410-355-3131. If your pet does not require urgent care, you will still be able to see a veterinarian with 24 hours. Everhart is open seven days a week for appointments. You can reach the Everhart WellPet Center at 410-793-7670. We are committed to helping your pet in any way that we can. If we discover that your pet needs a higher level of care, we may transfer the patient to a more specialized hospital that offers 24-hour care.
