At Mount Hermon Animal Clinic, the comfort of our patients is a high priority in all that we do.  We know that dogs and cats experience pain just as humans do; unfortunately, they hide their pain instinctively and often express very subtle decreases in activity level, increases in heart rate or decreases in appetite.

At our animal hospital in Danville, Virginia we often see animals with arthritis that appear pain-free, but after a week on pain medication, pet owners are amazed at how they seem to feel “young again.”  Your pet may be in pain right now and you are not aware of it.  If you want to be sure that your pet is not in pain, schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians today for a full physical exam.
