About This Book
This guide provides a daily reference for all members of the veterinary team. Presented in an easy-to-read instructional format, it gives practical information on pain management for small animals, including cats and dogs, birds, rabbits and exotic pets, with an emphasis on patient welfare and evidence-based medicine. The early chapters lay the foundations, including the physiology of pain, acute and chronic pain, pharmacological treatment and physical treatment. The remaining chapters focus on particular pain scenarios, such as dental pain and cancer pain, using authors' perspectives and case examples to enhance guidelines.
