Pain Control in Puppies

Puppies experience pain in much the same way as people, but they can not tolerate many of the medications we commonly use on ourselves.  Just a single dose of Tylenol or Advil could be fatal to your pet.  Human medications ingestion is consistently in the top 5 pet poisonings causing hospitalization.  Because their bodies do not use pain medications the same way that humans do, there are no over the counter pain medications for puppies.

The veterinarians in Martensville use their knowledge of animals, pain medication and pain relief strategies to prevent and manage pain in pets. All veterinarians and technologists at our vet clinic are highly trained in pain management to prevent and relieve pain before and after surgery and in the event of an injury or infection. We can also ease pain caused by panosteitis in our growing, large breed puppies.
