When the source of pain cannot be eliminated, effective pain relief management with the proper medications can quite literally be a life-saver for your pet.
As pets age, their bones and muscles become more brittle, much like in humans. This could make simple tasks such as walking, sitting, kneeling or fetching quite painful. Even going to the bathroom can be painful for your pet. Your veterinarian can prescribe different painkillers and anti inflammatories to alleviate some of your pet’s pain such as; a Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory (NSAID), Tramadol, Gabapentin, Amantadine.
