What is pain management?
None of us likes to see our pets in pain. Whilst acute pain is beneficial in the short term, promoting protection and adaption so as to prevent further injury and allow healing to occur, chronic pain is not beneficial at all. Chronic pain causes the same responses in the body as stress (e.g. increased heart rate, respiratory rate, decreased wound healing, adverse effects on the immune system) and can become a disease in its own right. In either case we want to find ways to relieve and manage our petís pain and that's where pain management comes in.
For many of our pets living with pain is already a fact of life. The good news is that there are now many good ways to help alleviate our pet's suffering and improve their quality of life.
