MANAGING CHRONIC PAIN AND MOBILITY CHALLENGES IN OLDER PETS

  Back

26/07/2019
The people we meet are excellent as recognising sudden pain or compromised mobility in their pets. But sometimes we incorrectly attribute changes in a pet's behaviour simply to 'old age'. Finding it increasingly difficult to jump on furniture, or seeming to walk more stiffly, are changes more likely to occur when pets are older but they're not because of 'old age'. These changes happen because, while our pets never complain, they feel pain. And almost always pain can be alleviated, sometimes even eliminated.

Crina Dragu, a Free University of Berlin graduate, and a certificate holder in Western Veterinary Acupuncture & Chronic Pain Management is at the London Vet Clinic each week to assess and treat chronic pain in dogs and cats. By spending considerable time with both you and your pet and then carefully palpating individual muscles Crina determines a dog or cat’s level of discomfort or pain. As well as acupuncture, Crina uses exercise, diet, medication, physiotherapy and laser treatments to improve her patients’ enjoyment of life. She is at the London Vet clinic on Fridays and Saturdays. If you would like an appointment please telephone us on 020 7723 2068 or email nurses@londonvetclinic.co.uk
