In providing compassionate care for your pet, it is essential that we maintain control of any pain your cat or dog may be experiencing. Circle Veterinary Clinic's veterinarians use a complete line of FDA-approved medications in our pharmacy, including several drugs to control inflammation to help us achieve this goal. These medications are dosed specifically based on your pet's weight and overall health. If needed, we can write prescriptions to local pharmacies to complement our veterinary-specific drugs. Some of these medications can have side effects, so laboratory tests (see above tab) may be necessary. Our Clinic also offers some alternative therapies for the management of acute and chronic pain, including a Therapy Laser, the finest quality joint supplement (Dasuquin), and/or injections with Adequan. All of these are designed to control inflammation in joints and maintain the health of the joint fluid and cartilage.
