WSAVA Pain Recognition, Assesment and Management Guidelines

WSAVA Pain Recognition, Assesment and Management Guidelines

The WSAVA Global Pain Council published their Pain Recognition, Assessment, and Management Guidelines in 2014, available through both the Journal of Small Animal Practice (WSAVA’s official scientific journal) and as a publicly available resource at www.wsava.org. The Guidelines are a succinct overview of pain assessment and management in small animals, including sections on pain pathophysiology, pain assessment for dogs, cats, acute and chronic pain, and one-page overviews of various therapeutic modalities.
