SEPTEMBER is "Animal Pain Awareness Month!!" The staff at Cinema Veterinary Centre are here to educate and inform pet owners about their pet’s health and well-being when it comes to pain management, be it acute or chronic pain.
 
The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management has proclaimed September as Animal Pain Awareness Month, and this coincides with human medicine’s Pain Awareness Month.
 
Pain comes in many forms: surgical pain, arthritis and cancer related pain, just to name a few. Acute pain is obvious and distressing. Chronic pain can be subtle, and masked as “getting old” or “slowing down.” Old age is not a disease, but pain is. There are many options to treat the various causes of pain in animals including pain medications, physical rehabilitation, acupuncture, laser therapy, and therapeutic massage.
 
Please schedule an appointment to meet with either Dr. Jaimie Ronchetto or Dr. Amber Wheelbarger to discuss possible pain being exhibited by your loved furry family member!!
