Pain may be detected as your pet not wanting to be petted, less affectionate, not eating, not sleeping well, unable to settle, limping, reluctance to jump in to the car, reluctance to go up or down stairs, or a change in behavior. Pain has many causes, and can be acute (sudden-onset), or longer-term (chronic pain). Our staff receive special training in the field of pain management. Dr. Merrin Hicks, Head of our Emergency and Critical Care Service, has conducted research in this field in the USA, and has several international publications . We are able to provide pain relief to your pet in a range of ways. This may include tablets, injections, infusions, local nerve-blocks, or patches. Our staff are on duty 24-hour per day to ensure pain relief for your pet is appropriate, especially when they are injured or recovering from major surgery.
