Unveiling the Art of Geriatric Pain Management at OKC Vet Campus

Have you ever wondered, "Is my aging pet in pain?" As our pets grow older, changes in their behavior and physical capabilities may signal discomfort. If you've noticed such changes, you're not alone. Here, we'll shed light on geriatric pain management, showcasing the groundbreaking work of OKC Vet Campus.

The Reality of Geriatric Pain

Our furry friends age gracefully, but aging comes with health challenges. Common ailments like arthritis, dental issues, and organ failure can cause chronic pain, which persists for months or even years. Unlike acute pain, resulting from sudden injury or surgery, chronic pain can be subtle yet insidious.

Do you know the signs of chronic pain in pets? They are masters at hiding discomfort, a survival tactic from their wild ancestry. But a vigilant pet parent may spot clues: unusual sleeping patterns, reduced appetite, and increased aggression, among others.
