The BSAVA Guide to Pain Management in Small Animal Practice is an essential reference guide for use in daily practice by all members of the veterinary team. Presented in an easy-to-read instructional format, this guide is intended to give practitioners 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 of pain management, including the physiology of pain, acute and chronic pain, pharmacological treatment and physical treatment. The following chapters focus on particular pain scenarios, such as dental pain and cancer pain, using authors’ perspectives and case examples to enhance guidelines.
