Pet Pain Management Services in Grand Junction, CO
At River Valley Gateway, we offer pet pain management services to ensure your pet is comfortable. It can be difficult to watch your pet have persisting pain. Our veterinarians work to find a pet pain management regimen that fits your pet's specific needs. Over time, pets can have discomfort in their joints and other areas of the body. As a certified hospice and palliative care veterinarian, Dr. Norton has additional training in pain management above and beyond what general veterinarians are taught. We can treat pain differently, and we often try various combinations of efforts until we get the right one for your pet. We may recommend oral medications, physical modalities such as acupuncture or chiropractic manipulations, herbal supplements, CBD oil, nutritional supplements, and even more. We understand your pets are apart of the family, and we treat them with the utmost respect and compassion.
