Pain Management

Is your animal family member experiencing discomfort from a chronic ailment or recent injury or surgery?

Pets do not have the ability to control pain on their own. They can’t simply take a few aspirin or apply an icepack to an area of their body that hurts. Instead, they rely on us – as their loving owners and health care providers – to recognize and address pain on their behalf. At Neshoba County Animal Hospital, we believe that every animal has the right to enjoy a pain-free existence. That’s why we’re so pleased to include professional pain management as part of our comprehensive list of services. We want to help your loved one live a happier, more comfortable life.

Our approach to pain management is incredibly thorough, which makes it highly effective. We recognize that many aspects of medical care may cause discomfort to our patients, whether it be a simple injection or a complex surgical procedure. To that end, we aim to not just control pain as it is happening, but to prevent that pain from occurring in the first place. For medical procedures, we use a combination of pain control medication which has been proven to be both safe and highly effective. This helps us keep your best friend comfortable and pain-free.

We also understand that there are many other types of pain, such as that which is associated with chronic ailments, post-surgical or injury recovery and the natural aging process. For this type of discomfort, we use a number of different techniques, based on the situation at hand. Every case is handled on an individual basis, which helps us achieve the best possible results for each patient. These methods may include any of the following, applied either independently or in conjunction with one another:

  • Medications
  • Supplements
  • Massage

Cats have many skills, one of which is hiding the signs of pain. That said, cats who suffer from osteoarthritis (OA) often exhibit noticeable changes in their everyday behavior. Suddenly normal daily activities, such as jumping, playing, or climbing are no longer easy due to pain. If you believe your feline friend may be suffering from OA, the first step is visiting the vet for a proper diagnosis. The next step is treating the condition with Solensia.

Solensia is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for feline osteoarthritis pain. It is administered monthly via a quick injection right in the vet’s exam room. Solensia mimics your cat’s natural antibodies to combat pain signals and the results can be significant. Give your furry family member the relief he or she deserves and help get that purrfect guy or gal moving more freely and comfortably once again with Solensia!

Whether it’s controlling surgical pain, managing chronic medical conditions, handling post-injury recovery, or helping to make the senior years more comfortable, we’ve got you covered. With a wide array of pain management techniques at our disposal, we can develop a customized plan just for your loved one. Give the experienced professionals at Neshoba County Animal Hospital a call today and let’s get your pet on the path to a more enjoyable life.
