Treatment Choices & Considerations

What are Woodland’s treatment choices and considerations?

We want to do anything we can to ease your pet’s pain. Luckily, there are a variety of pain medications available along with new analgesic (pain-reducing) products to help treat your pet after an injury or with chronic pain. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) are often used to treat orthopedic-related pain with fewer side effects. Aside from medication, some supplements (e.g. fish oils, glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate) can also be used, especially for chronic pain caused from osteoarthritis and degenerative joint diseases. Laser surgery is also a wonderful option. There are many treatments available for managing pet pain, so come visit Woodland Animal Hospital at any time to discuss your options.
