  • Steven M Fox

Pain Management in Small Animal Medicine describes and clearly illustrates the difficulties and choices facing veterinarians in identifying and treating pain, in addition to providing an account of the neurobiological mechanisms responsible for the pain.

Expanded from the author’s previous work, Chronic Pain in Small Animal Medicine, this volume uses the original text to illustrate the core theme of “mechanism base” and expands the text considerably with the inclusion of areas beyond chronic pain.

Topics include:

  • Pain assessment in small animal medicine
  • The functional physiology of pain
  • The use of pharmacologics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
  • Nutraceutical mechanisms and therapy
  • Management of pain related to canine osteoarthritis, musculoskeletal disease, and cancer
  • Pain management features unique to cats

Emphasizing the latest evidence and contemporary understanding of “why” and “how” to treat pain, the book will enable veterinary healthcare professionals as well as those in training, education, and research to develop a greater depth of knowledge in mechanisms of pain and potential targets for treatment— thereby raising the standard of care for pain management.

The author of a highly successful book on chronic pain in small animals** now turns his attention to all types of pain affecting the dog and the cat. Dr Foxs work is pre-eminent in describing and illustrating clearly and simply the difficulties and choices facing the veterinarian in identifying and treating pain, as well as providing an account of the neurobiological mechanisms responsible for pain.

This approach is continued in his new book, which retains the best from the earlier book and expands upon it to include areas beyond chronic pain. By focusing on the latest evidence and contemporary understanding of why and how to treat pain, the author aims to raise standards in resolving pain management to the best possible practice.

Pain Management in Small Animal Medicine is of value to veterinarians in practice, training, education and research, and to all related veterinary healthcare professionals seeking greater depth of knowledge of the mechanisms of pain and potential targets for treatment.
