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 group solely dedicated to pet pain management. The goal of IVAPM is to further the understanding of pain in animals and determine 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 to extend his skills beyond the norm in treating animal pain.

Stetson Hills Animal Hospital Treats Pet Pain

We use a wide variety of techniques to treat pets afflicted with both acute and chronic pain 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. Sometimes, an undiagnosed condition or effective treatment of an existing condition can “turn back the clock” for your older pet.
