Pet Pain Management

In the same way humans benefit from physical therapy rehabilitation, so, too, do pets. At Valley Animal Rehabilitation, our Clifton, NJ, team considers each pet as part of the family and wants to help ensure your pet is operating at peak performance.


Pet Pain Management and Animal Rehabilitation

Whether your pet is small, medium, or large, his level of pain may be difficult to recognize. Sometimes, the pain may be subtle while it may be obvious your pet is in distress other times. In either situation, an examination can be important to determine what the root cause is.

Once your pet is diagnosed and the cause is determined, utilizing the experience and services of specialists dedicated to pet pain management can have a positive impact on your pet's overall health.

Pain management options may include one process or several depending on the type and severity of the problem. Your pet may be placed on medication, incorporate exercises into his or her daily routine, and include physical therapy sessions.
