Even though all of our hospice consultations include a thorough pain management plan, our pain management consultations differ from the perspective that there is not a terminal diagnosis.
This type of appointment is best for pets with chronic arthritis or pain who are otherwise healthy.
A pain management consultation involves a complete medical, physical and environmental assessment specifically focused on increasing comfort and quality of life through decreasing pain. An individualized and advanced plan to your pet's type of pain is developed, including medications and helpful therapies such as acupuncture.
Pain management appointments include a month of ongoing medical management and the first acupuncture session if scheduled with Dr. Meagan or Dr. Stephanie, both of whom are certified in veterinary acupuncture.
Acupuncture appointments can be scheduled as a "stand alone" service, without engaging in a more extensive pain management relationship. Please see cost of services for more detail.
