Pet Pain Treatment

At Gordon Vet Hospital , we understand that pets and their owners share a special bond and that no one wants to see their pet in pain or distress. Our experienced vets and nurses have the expertise and care to identify the cause of your pet’s pain.  There are many causes and treatments and we will do our best to make sure your pet is more comfortable as soon as possible.


Compared to cats, it can be easier to recognise that dogs are in pain and that dog pain treatment is necessary
You may notice:

  • Unusual lack of appetite
  • Pain when touched
  • Less willing to play or go for a walk
  • Overall changes in personality / behaviour
  • Heavy panting
  • Reluctance to climb stairs

Cancer signs and general pain symptoms can sometime overlap, so it is important to see a vet as soon as possible if you notice any of these changes in your dog. They will be able to identify the proper dog pain treatment necessary.


It can be difficult to recognise if you need to seek cat pain treatment
as felines naturally tend to hide pain as a survival mechanism. However,
there are a few tell-tale signs that your cat is in need of help such

  • Decrease in grooming habits
  • Overall changes in personality / behaviour
  • Aggression when handled
  • Withdrawal from activities they normally enjoy
  • Reluctance to climb stairs

Your vet can examine the cat to determine if there is a problem
and prescribe the appropriate medication or implement other cat pain
treatment they deem necessary.


You love your pet and seeing him in pain is something that is difficult to watch. Unfortunately, there are so many things that could be triggering their symptoms. The compassionate staff here at Gordon Vet are here to help. Using our advanced tools, we can help them get back to being the happy, healthy pet you love, so give us a call today.
