Pain Management

At Liberty Animal Hospital, we are comitted to providing a high standard of care to your loved ones. This includes a proper pain management protocol to ensure that your pets feel as comfortable as possible whether they are under your watch or ours.

How do I know if my pet is experiencing pain?
Owners are best at identifying pain in their pets because of their daily interaction. Overt signs of pain, such as limping, or crying are not always present since veterinary patients can express pain differently from humans. Facial expression, abnormal postures, hiding, changes in eating, drinking, bathroom habits, sleeping, and activity can all alert you to pain in your pet.
