The Pain Clinic at the Foster Hospital for Small Animals was created especially for veterinary patients with painful conditions that have proven difficult to manage using standard analgesic regimens.
The Pain Clinic offers a multidisciplinary approach to pain, blending the expertise of anesthesiologists, surgeons, oncologists, neurologists, physical therapists and complementary medicine practitioners. This close collaboration allows us to offer treatment options that are tailored to the individual patient. They may include a blending of traditional and non-conventional new analgesic drug regimens, physical therapy or palliative care.
Patients who may benefit from a consultation at the Pain Clinic include those suffering from osteoarthritis, prolonged post-surgical pain, pain resulting from medical conditions, major trauma, terminal disease (cancer, organ failure) or any other condition in which pain significantly impairs quality of life.
