Pain Management

The doctors and staff of Alta Veterinary Hospital are certified and practice comprehensive pain management for the comfort and well-being of your pet.

Veterinary patients feel pain and discomfort under the same circumstances as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in animals is the essence of good patient care. We take special care in considering pain management in all medical and surgical situations. All surgical patients receive preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative pain management and their response to therapy is assessed before discharge from the hospital.
