Pain Management for Pets

Dr. Cohen has been an active member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management (IVAPM) since 2004. Only a small number of veterinarians belong to this organization, which is the only veterinary group solely dedicated to furthering the understanding of pain in animals and determining the most effective treatments for that pain. Dr. Cohen has attended many annual IVAPM conventions and closely follows the list serve and study materials available to group members in order to maximize his skills beyond the norm in treating animal pain.

Stetson Hills Animal Hospital Treats Pet Pain

A wide variety of techniques are used to treat pets afflicted with both acute pain and chronic pain which can be caused by:

  • Injury
  • Surgery
  • Degenerative arthritis (osteoarthritis)

…and more. Many older pets begin slowing down, not simply as a result of advancing age but as a result of advancing pain. We encourage you to contact us to schedule an examination and consultation with Dr. Cohen. We would love to determine whether we can “turn back the clock” for your older pet by discovering an undiagnosed condition or treating an existing painful condition.
