When it comes to managing your pet’s aches and pains, Animal Crossing offers the highest quality of care. We demonstrate compassion and provide the most effective medical treatments available. To best serve the individual needs of your pet, we develop a unique pain management plan made specifically for your loved one.

Pets often share traits in common with their humans like soreness or an achy hip. Animals also share the way they experience pain. Therefore, you may recognize some medications, techniques and care for animal pain that your own doctor similarly prescribed for you. However, it is very important to note that you should never give your pet medication designed for a human unless first consulting with a veterinarian. Many medications designed for humans can cause life-threatening and irreversible reactions in animals. Medications should be kept out of reach of your pet.

We may advise that your pet make some lifestyle changes. A specific diet, soft bedding, a few more rounds of fetch, raised food and water dishes or an extra snuggle now and then are just some of the things that may ease your pet’s pain at home.

The first step to identifying the cause, is to determine whether your pet’s pain is acute or chronic. Acute pain is often sudden and triggered by a specific event. Examples are if your pet has a recent injury, they may experience acute pain. However, chronic pain persists over time, and some causes may include conditions such as joint inflammation, arthritis, or unattended tooth decay.

Early intervention is important when it comes to managing your pet’s pain. Some common signs of pain in your pet may include:

  • Limping
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and / or vomiting
  • Vocalization
  • Change in temperament or behavior
  • Licking a specific area
  • Change in bathroom habits
  • Panting
  • Hiding
  • We recently moved to San Antonio & hadn’t found a vet for our two dogs but were looking here & there for their upcoming vaccines. Our sweet Lucy ended up getting super sick on us & I was looking around to see which vet was the best option for us when I found multiple great reviews on Animal Crossing Vet on a group for dog moms! We decided to take her in & found out she had pyometra. From the moment I called them to when I left it was all a great experience. The vet tech Rachel was very gentle with our Lucy & explained everything that had to be done. Dr. Glover reassured us everything would be fine & he would give us a call after surgery. She is now home resting after all the pain she endured. The drive is 30 min from where we live but it’s worth it for us. If you’re looking for a new vet, this ones it! 🐶🐾🤍

  • Everyone at Animal Crossing Hospital is fantastic. Dr Glover, Dr Rode, the Vet Techs like Rachel, and the office staff are all always so nice, helpful, and in the case of our last visit, very patient. You can tell they truly care about their patients and their patients owners.

  • The staff and Doctors are friendly. They treat you and your fur babies as if they are part of their family. I would not take my fur babies any where else!!!! I have used these Doctors for 13 years and have always been treated with the upmost care. They help you with any and all questions and comfort you when you have to lay a fur baby to rest. I can not has enough about Dr.Rode and the other Doctors and Staff.
