Pets Feel Pain, Too: Animal Pain Awareness Month with El Paso Animal Hospital
We love our pets and would do almost anything for them. So, when we have a pet in pain, we want to help them to feel better. But, what if you weren't aware that your pet was hurting? What kinds of signs should you look for? In conjunction with Animal Pain Awareness Month, El Paso Animal Hospital is helping pet owners to be more aware of the small and large pains our animals may feel on a daily basis. Located in Derby, KS and serving the greater Wichita area, we strive to be ready for a plethora of problems pets and their owners may be experiencing. By recognizing the pain signs our pets may be showing us, we can become more comprehensive pet owners and give our animals the best quality of life.
As an initiative from the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management, Animal Pain Awareness Month is designed to help pet owners be more in tune with the signs and signals our animals are showing us. The entire month of September has been marked as a time for a veterinarian, and pet owner alike, to discuss pain and treatment options. By coinciding with Human Pain Awareness Month, the IVAPM looks to shed light on how pain can negatively affect patients of all types, both two and four-legged. And, if you've ever experience extended bouts of pain, you understand how debilitating and all-consuming the struggle can be. Now, imagine you were unable to verbalize what you were feeling. Don't let your beloved fall into the pet in pain cycle.
