Topic Summary


Most dogs conceal their pain – so how can I tell when my dog is in pain? How much pain? How can I help? Is my treatment plan working?

Living with pain is stressful, and contributes to a downward cycle in a dog’s health. Don’t let your dog suffer unneccesarily – find out how you can effectively alleviate pain and improve your dog’s longevity… chances are, if they are a senior dog they are feeling achy!

Dr Adam will share 5 signs to watch for, and explain the clues our dogs give to help us manage their pain from arthritis, dental disease or injury.

We will briefly review remedies like anti-inflammatory medicines, herbal formulas, surgery, dental extractions, cold laser treatment, acupuncture, supplements, and even upgrading to healthier food- all treatments that effectively helped the 3 case studies to be presented this evening: JJ, Ocean Blue, and Gizmo feel so much better!

Bring Your Questions- we have reserved the final 30 minutes for Q&A time with Dr Adam

Who is Dr Adam?


Dr. Adam, the owner and head clinician at Healthy Pets Veterinary Hospital, specializes in nutrition and diet, acupuncture, and herbal medicine. He is a ‘foodies’ vet’, keen on promoting awareness of the benefits of fresh food-based diets for pets. His style has been referred to as thorough, patient, and supportive. Dr. Adam lectures monthly at Muttville; some of his past lectures have covered clinical nutrition and medical management of geriatric pets. Dr. Adam always has animals in his family; his current main buddies are his hiking companion Ricky, a senior black Chihuahua mix, and J.J., a sweet but intense Border Collie newly adopted from Muttville.

These awesome learning experiences are sponsored by small club: big adventures for small dogs, Healthy Pets Veterinary Hospital, Muttville Senior Dog Rescue and Pawtrero Hill BathHouse & Feed Co.
