Pain Management


Pain management is an important issue in veterinary medicine in order to relieve suffering after surgery or trauma.  Compassionate practices manage stress and pain from the first puppy or kitten procedures right through the lifetime of the pet. 

As more research has been done on pain management in animals during the past decade, this topic has become extremely important to Iron Mountain Animal Hospital.  We follow the guidelines of the AAHA/AAFP for pain management of cats and dogs.
