Pet Pain Management & Stem Cell Therapy

No one likes to be in pain or to see someone they love suffer with it. One of the first things we do is to help you know when your pet is in pain. Once we have a diagnosis, we work with you and your pet to find the appropriate way to keep the pain to a minimum.

Pain management is a priority, whether the pain is temporary, after surgery or an injury, or something that is going to be a long-term concern. Our goal is to make your pet as comfortable as possible at all times.

Pain Medications

Many of the medications we give to your pet are the same ones you may be given. These drugs have been tested and passed safety requirements. We do not use unproven drugs for any situation. If one drug is not helping with pain management, we will try a different one, or perhaps a combination of medications, to make your pet comfortable.

Chronic Conditions

Like humans, your pet may develop a disease or condition that keeps him or her in almost constant discomfort. We work hard to find a combination of therapies that help to ease this pain. This may include massage, hydrotherapy, or even physical therapy to keep the joints moving. If the pain is due to a disease such as cancer, we provide you with the medications necessary to give your pet a reasonable quality of life while undergoing treatments to eliminate the cancer.

Laser Therapy

We are excited to provide the most cutting-edge laser therapy. Laser therapy is available for treating problems involving the soft tissues of the body, including:

Laser therapy is non-invasive, pain free, and carries no risks, making it a great solution for many health problems. Most pets find laser therapy to be relaxing, and look forward to their treatments, much like we would a look forward to a good massage.

Stem Cell Therapy

Medical advances have found that the use of adult stem cells, found in adipose tissue, can be used to promote growth of ligaments, tendons, and bones. This greatly reduces the amount of time needed for healing.

It also reduces the amount of pain in joints or bones due to injury or deterioration. There is a very high success rate with this therapy that can have your pet almost pain free in less than three months.

We know you do not want to see your pet suffering in any way. Our pain management practices are in place to lessen the pain your pet feels, allowing him or her to heal faster.

We treat each pet, and his or her pain, individually, doing whatever it takes to minimize any suffering and get him or her back to normal as quickly as possible.

"Everyone is very friendly when we arrive with our dogs. We have had a few emergencies with our dogs and I always feel very confident that my dogs' health is the highest priority. The follow up from the office when my dog was in the emergency room overnight was extremely appreciated. I felt that the practice cared just as much for my pets as I did. This type of attentiveness is exactly why I would never go to another practice."

"Everything is great. The staff (both drs & reception) are amazing which is why we keep coming back. Miriam is extremely knowledgable and helpful for whatever we need. Our pups love going to the vet!"

"Everyone is always so great towards me and Bella. I'm so happy I have such a great vet office, keep up the good work :)"

"The staff is always so friendly and you can tell that they love their jobs. Every pet is greeted with enthusiasm and compassion."

""Value" is a tough thing - veterinary care is expensive. The line-item receipt really helps me understand all of the components of a visit and a checkup. There's never getting around the 'gulp factor' when it's time to pay...but I feel that my pets are getting excellent, and not excessive, care."

"Your "front of the house" people are great. Miriam and the rest are efficient and courteous, and clearly know and love our dogs. Can't buy that."

"Dr. Schnoor has treated our dogs since weaning, 9 years ago. She is professional, knowledgeable and compassionate. She helped save my female dog's life a few years ago, for which I will always be grateful. Dr. Ross has been a great addition. He is also conscientious and well informed. Human hospitals could learn a lesson."

"Dr. Ross is very thorough and professional. He takes time with clients to review pet status and healthcare planning. The support staff is great with the animals."

"I really appreciated the follow up email I received from the doctor asking if I had any additional questions"

"Something I really appreciated about this office is that the woman who made my reservation for Dylan actually remembered him (and loved him) from his stay while with Feline Friends. It's nice to know that the staff are not just veterinary professionals, but also animal lovers."
