Angel Ridge Veterinary Service PLLC

Quality compassionate veterinary care for your animals.

Pain Management

At Angel Ridge Veterinary Service, managing your pet’s pain is one of our highest priorities. Besides the fact that we don’t like to see animals suffer, studies show that pain actually impairs healing. Since our goal is to promote healing, we have several strategies for controlling pain:

Pain Management Strategies

  • Oral medications
  • Injections
  • Constant infusions
  • Nerve blocks
  • Regional analgesia

Many of these methods are included in the cost for routine surgical procedures. While these methods are generally very safe and beneficial, some do carry risks for some patients. Naturally, Dr. Darcy Smith will discuss any potential risks with you.
