Pain Management

High-quality veterinary medicine focuses on the entire patient. Medical issues that affect physical function, and emotional, psychological issues that affect well-being are all part of your pets care. Experiencing pain can affect the body’s physical functioning and have a detrimental effect on a patient’s state of mind. That’s why pain management is among Smithfield Animal Hospital's primary considerations when we are treating a pet for any medical condition.

From routine procedures (such as a spay or dental cleanings), to more advanced medical treatments (such as orthopedic surgeries or cancer treatments), to chronically painful conditions (such as arthritis or back pain), we are dedicated to providing safe and effective pain management to every patient. We will also help you recognize signs of pain in your pet so that we can modify his or her pain management plan when necessary.

Recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients is at the very heart of quality, compassionate patient care. We do not take pain management for granted and will employ all our skills to help ensure your pet’s comfort, well-being, and full recovery.

Please call Smithfield Animal Hospital at 757-357-9308 and let's discuss a pain management plan for your pet.
