Managing Pet Pain in the Sunland CA & Tujunga CA Area


The veterinarians and staff at Pet Medical Center Sunland hate to see any animal in pain, especially yours! Animal pain can be a result of injuries, arthritis in both dogs and cats, routine operations such as spaying and neutering and tooth extractions, or serious illnesses such as cancer. After giving your pet a thorough examination and making a diagnosis, we determine the best course of action to alleviate your dog or cat’s discomfort.

Our comprehensive approach to pain management includes injectable or oral medications chosen specifically for your pet’s needs, sustained release pain patches, nutraceuticals (nutritional supplements), diet recommendations and nutritional counseling.

Additionally, should your pet need surgery, the veterinarians and staff at Pet Medical Center Sunland administer the highest quality medications to make your animal as comfortable as possible during the procedure and throughout his or her recovery.
