The Importance of Treating Pain in Pets
Pain relief is a critical aspect of complete pet care, which is why Mile High Veterinary Hospital provides this dedicated service for their patients. “There are some people who still believe pain is good for a pet since an animal in pain won’t move around as much, and they think that will help the pet heal faster,” Dr. Waskow reports. “Clinical studies have proven that the exact opposite is true. Pain causes a release of chemicals from the adrenal glands which interfere with healing. Pets who have the advantage of multimodal pain relief recover more quickly and more completely than pets who suffer in pain.”
The multimodal pain relief and pet pain treatment options available at Mile High Veterinary Hospital can be used to treat pain associated with arthritis, bladder infections, gastroenteritis, muscle strain, joint sprain, trauma, wound healing, intervertebral disc disease, and more.

Dr. Kriet of Mile High Veterinary Hospital suggests keeping a watchful eye on pets to check for signs of pain. She explains that signs of pain to watch out for include limping, not eating, crying out when touched, pacing, and urinating inappropriately. “Some pets suffering from a painful condition may not be acting like themselves. In these situations, it's critical to get to the root of the problem as soon as possible. I recommend scheduling an appointment with a veterinarian who is experienced in providing multimodal pain relief immediately if signs of pain are observed. If you're not certain your veterinarian can help, schedule an appointment with our team. Let us help your pets get relief from pain today."
