What does pain look like for pets?

Whether we are working with acute pain from an injury or surgery or chronic pain from arthritis we approach pain from a multi-modal perspective at Yonge Street Animal Hospital. This means that pain is managed and treated with different medications, supplements and activities to give your pet the best chance of success.

Pets do not always show us pain in the ways we would expect (whining, limping, ect.) and it can be very hard to recognize. If you notice your pet’s behaviour changing over time it may be a sign of pain. An assessment with one of our doctors can help us develop a plan to keep your pet comfortable and living their best life.
