Pain Management

One of our goals at Walton Way Veterinary Clinic is to provide the most effective medication and pain management strategy for pets that have pain issues. Left untreated, pain reduces the quality of life and can delay recovery from surgery, an injury, or illness.

Many animals will not show obvious signs of pain or sickness. Pet owners do not realize that the most common sign of pain is change in behavior. If you notice your pet exhibiting any of the following symptoms, chances are that your pet is experiencing pain, and should be examined by a qualified veterinarian.

Common Signs of Pain:
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased Activity
  • Lagging behind on walks
  • Difficulty standing up
  • Pacing, Restlessness, Biting
  • Slow to Sit or Lay Down
  • Limping
  • Avoidance of Stairs
  • Muscle Atrophy (loss)
  • Hesitation to Move
  • Neck Weakness
  • Trembling
  • Depressed Appetite
  • Running with “Bunny Hops”
  • Unusual Crying or Whining - or yelping when touched
  • Hiding
  • Arched Back, Head Lowered or Tilted
  • Panting (Increase in respiration)

In addition to treating pets for chronic pain or pain from injury, we focus on our surgical cases to ensure that they are as pain free as possible. If pain medication is given before surgery is performed, your pet will hurt much less after the surgery, will require less anesthesia and post-operative pain medicine, and will recover more quickly from the procedure performed.

If you live in the areas of Augusta, Evans, or Martinez, Georgia, and your pet is exhibiting signs of pain, please call our clinic today and schedule an examination by our capable veterinarians.
