Pets can be very sneaky about hiding when they’re in pain. Don’t let your pet suffer! DC Ranch Animal Hospital provides compassionate pain management services in Scottsdale.
We are an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited facility and are fully equipped to help your pet feel their best in the face of acute and chronic pain. Our focus is to improve your pet’s quality of life.
Pets can’t tell us when they’re hurting like humans can, which makes identifying pain very tricky. Fortunately, DC Ranch Animal Hospital is here to help both you and your pet.
Signs your pet might be experiencing pain include:
Difficulty getting up
Standing or sitting in strange positions
Shaking or trembling
Whining or whimpering
Constantly licking or chewing on a particular body part
Unusual behavior (e.g. strangely aggressive)
If your pet is showing any of the above symptoms, it’s possible they’re in pain. Typically, their behavior changes or becomes unusual when they’re experiencing chronic pain. If you notice any of these symptoms, don’t delay and bring them in to see us. We have many options to help your pet feel like themselves again.
It’s important that you do not give your pet any medication without first consulting with our Scottsdale veterinarian. Pets have a different body chemistry than humans do, and it’s important that they receive the right treatment from a qualified professional.
