Angell Animal Medical Center

The Pain Medicine service at Angell Animal Medical Center offers treatment for companion animals with discomfort that negatively affects their quality of life, regardless of their primary diagnosis. Many of our patients have complex medical issues that complicate treatment for pain. Some owners seek help in accurately determining whether their animals are in pain and how much they are suffering. Many of our patients are nearing the end of their life and this service helps pet owners decide on comfort care measures and address quality of life concerns.

The Oncology service at Angell Animal Medical Center
Angell's board-certified veterinary oncologists are committed to improving your companion’s quality of life in an atmosphere of caring and compassion.

This includes routine use of Vascular Access Ports to more comfortably administer treatment (less needles!), and Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT).
