We are dedicated to patient comfort at Austin Vet Care at Metric. Pets feel pain and can be great at masking it due to their natural instinct ingrained in them from their ancestors. Have you ever heard the saying, "If you limp you're lunch?" Many pets live by this saying, which means once they do start showing painful symptoms they're often in a great deal of pain. As animal lovers and educated professionals, we are responsible for identifying and controlling pain. We do this through the use of pain medications, physical therapy, surgical procedures, proper restraint, and diagnostic investigation to get to the root of the problem. If your pet seems painful, do not hesitate to give us a call!
