An ever-increasing number of drugs are available to veterinarians for use in the control of pain. This guide gives vets the information to choose the most appropriate pain medication for any clinical situation. Introductory chapters explain the physiology of pain and pharmacology of analgesics, and are followed by detailed chapters on management of acute and post-operative pain and chronic pain, the problems of pain management and pain assessment.
