Acute pain in pets can be a difficult and uncomfortable experience for both pets and their owners. At Maplewood Veterinary Center, we understand the importance of diagnosing and managing pain in pets in order to ensure their quality of life. Acute pain is defined as pain that is present for a short period of time and is typically caused by an injury or illness. It is important to recognize the signs of acute pain in pets so that it can be properly managed and treated.
Chronic pain is a long-term condition that can cause a variety of problems in animals, including decreased mobility, changes in behavior, and overall discomfort. Our team of veterinarians is experienced in recognizing the signs and symptoms of chronic pain and in providing effective treatments to help alleviate it.
