Pain Management

Bear Creek Veterinary Care is committed to the comfort and well-being of your pet's recovering from illness, injury, or surgical procedures. We have found that when we manage a pet’s pain, in addition to knowing that we have kept the pet comfortable, he or she also returns to normal activities in a short amount of time.  We utilize tailored and individualized pain management for all of our patients. Our veterinarians and staff discuss all pain management options with you in order to develop a pain management protocol specifically designed for your pet.

Pets hide pain in order to avoid the attention of predators. While this can be an effective defense mechanism, it makes it hard for pet owners to recognize when their pets are hurting. Our team of doctors will evaluate your pet and help you determine his or her level of comfort. Some of the signs that a pet is in pain include:

  • Hiding or being unusually quiet
  • Vocalizing
  • Biting or threatening to bite when touched
  • Chewing at a part of the body
  • Increased aggression or submission
  • Difficulty eating or sleeping
  • Attention seeking

No matter the source of your pet’s pain, we will work with you to evaluate your pet’s comfort and plan for ongoing relief and restoration of your pet’s health.

  • "Just want to say a big thank you to bear creek veterinary! My dog was sick and even though they had a full schedule they were able to squeeze her in and treat her, they also called me the very next day as soon as they opened to see how she was feeling. Always wonderful, caring staff and the Veterinarians are wonderful!"
