Managing acute, postoperative pain in canine and feline patients is critical to minimize suffering and prevent the development of chronic pain. Pain management guidelines advocate for preventive, multimodal surgical pain protocols that combine multiple analgesics with different modes of action along the pain pathway. This talk will review the principles of acute pain management and provide specific treatment recommendations that can help practitioners optimize perioperative pain protocols for their patients.

 Here are the quick details:

  • This meeting is limited to member veterinarians and technicians only.       
  • After registration with the WMVMA, you will receive an email to register with Zoom.
