Introducing Pain Management clinics at Vetcall Burleigh

Arthritis is one of the most common conditions that see in our elderly furry friends. Arthritis is a progressive condition that causes pain and discomfort often in the forms of aching, chronic pain or discomfort. Given that our furry friends can’t tell us if they’re feeling pain, they often show their pain through behaviours, such as slowing down or a reluctance to get up.

While there are many stages of arthritis, there are many ways to prevent the pain of arthritis from affecting your furry friend. Effective treatments for arthritis include medications, nutritional supplements, weight management and exercise plans.

During the winter months, Dr Claire is running pain management clinics to help our furry friends manage the discomfort. These consults involve a comprehensive health check, gait analysis, full pain evaluation, lifestyle evaluation, a proposed exercise regime and a weight check.

If you are unsure if your pet is experiencing pain, please give our friendly team a call to book your pet in for a check-up!
