Understanding Pet Pain Management

Pets, like humans, can experience pain due to various reasons such as injury, illness, or aging. Recognizing and addressing your pet’s pain is crucial for their well-being and quality of life. At Marshfield Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing compassionate and effective pain management solutions tailored to your pet’s individual needs.

Our Approach to Pet Pain Management

At Marshfield Animal Hospital, we take a multi-faceted approach to pet pain management, focusing on both pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions to alleviate discomfort and improve your pet’s quality of life.

Pharmacological Interventions

Pain Medications

We may prescribe pain medications tailored to your pet’s specific needs and condition.

Anti-inflammatory Drugs

These medications help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain associated with conditions such as arthritis or injury.


Supplements such as glucosamine and omega-3 fatty acids can support joint health and alleviate pain in pets with arthritis.

Non-Pharmacological Interventions

Physical Therapy: We may advise that your pet receive physical therapy to improve mobility, reduce pain, and enhance overall well-being.

Acupuncture: We may advise acupuncture for its benefits in managing chronic pain conditions and promoting relaxation in pets.

Weight Management: Maintaining a healthy weight is essential for reducing stress on joints and minimizing pain in pets with conditions such as osteoarthritis.
