There may be many benefits to keeping your pet on daily nutraceutical supplements and hemp oil products for pain, protection of the cartilage, and decrease in inflammation. The regulation and consistency of quality of these supplements is a major topic of concern for the animal industry. Dr. Knight has been recently certified in the pharmacology and benefits of CBD, and we have many clients that have had great experiences integrating into their pet’s pain management plan.
Conventional drug therapies including non-steroidal anti-inflammatories, gabapentin, and newer targeted receptor pain management prescription medications are available to help make your pet as comfortable as possible. Our goal is to develop a management plan that has the maximum benefit of comfort with least impact on the GI tract, kidney, and liver.
Each individual pet should be evaluated and history reviewed by our veterinarians to determine what is the best approach for your pet.
