Pain Management

Is your animal family member suffering from a chronic painful condition or experiencing discomfort from a recent injury or surgery?

Pets lack the ability to manage pain on their own. They can’t simply pop a few aspirins or apply an ice pack to the area of their body that hurts. Instead, they depend on us – as their loving owners and health care providers – to recognize and address pain on their behalf. 

At Victoria Road Animal Hospital, we believe that every creature has the right to enjoy a pain-free existence. That’s why we’re pleased to offer professional pain management as part of our comprehensive list of services. We want to help your loved one enjoy a happier, more comfortable existence.

At Victoria Road Animal Hospital, our approach to pain management is incredibly thorough and therefore highly effective. We recognize that some aspects of veterinary medicine may result in discomfort, whether it be a simple injection or a surgical procedure. To that end, we strive to not just control pain as it’s happening, but to prevent that pain from occurring in the first place. For medical procedures, we utilize a combination of pain control medication which has been proven to be both safe and effective. This helps us keep our furry friends comfortable and pain-free.

There are also many other types of pain, such as that which is associated with chronic medical conditions, post-surgical or injury recovery, and of course, the natural aging process. For these types of discomfort, we leverage a variety of different techniques, based on each pet’s unique situation. Every case is handled on an individual basis, which helps us achieve the best possible results for each patient. 

Whether it’s controlling surgical pain, managing chronic medical conditions, handling post-injury recovery, or helping to make the golden years more comfortable, we’ve got you covered. With a wide array of pain management techniques at our disposal, we can develop a customized plan specifically for your loved one. Contact Victoria Road Animal Hospital today and let’s get your pet on the path to a more enjoyable life.

My partner and I have had great experiences at Victoria Road Animal Hospital after switching from a different vet clinic that we felt didn't care as much for our kitties. At each visit that we have had at Victoria Road AH, they have gone above and beyond to make us feel like they care about our cats. Recently, one of our cats had stopped eating for multiple days. At the appointment, the Dr took the time and effort to explain our treatment options and, later, explained the results of the bloodwork that was run. They always listen to our concerns and it has never felt like the appointments are rushed, even standard appts like annual vaccines. The front end staff are also very welcoming and friendly. Thank you for all the work you do! :)

I feel very grateful to be a client of VRAH and would give them 6/5 starts if I could. The entire staff are absolutely phenomenal and clearly love and care for each of their patients as their own. As the guardian of a very difficult fear reactive dog, it means a lot that this team sees him for the great dog he is, despite his challenges, and they are always willing to meet him where he is at. Drs Harris, Melillo, and Buchanan have all been extremely supportive and patient with our boy, and have always gracefully allowed us to cut appointments short if he is too overwhelmed. The RVTs and vet assistant/client care staff are beyond exceptional as well, they treat even the smallest concerns with great care. The VRAH team are so communicative and ensure that you always understand what and why they recommend for your pet and always provide owners with all of the appropriate options. Normally I am not in the room for procedures, however today I was present and want to specifically express my appreciation for Dr Buchanan, RVT Emma, and Anna for their wonderfully compassionate, expert work with Whiskey today, and their thoughtful advice and help with Rye. Truly a top class hospital that I feel very safe entrusting my four-legged family member’s health with.

Dr Harris is super helpful and explains everything very well. We go for both our 17 year old dog and 4 year old dog.
