Description

Cats have a pain pathway similar to that of all other mammals, making it impossible for cats to be immune from pain. Yet cats are highly likely to be undertreated for pain. This occurs due to a variety of reasons, including the cat’s masterful ability to hide pain, the veterinarian’s feeling that knowledge of analgesic drugs is sometimes inadequate, the veterinary team’s need for defined roles in hospital-wide pain assessment/management strategies, and the client’s lack of resources to understand and assess their cat’s pain at home. All of these topics, along with some favorite drugs/analgesic protocols will be discussed in this webinar.

Objectives

Present a brief overview of pain and analgesia in cats
and provide pain assessment & treatment resources for the veterinary team.
Emphasize the importance of pain management
and discuss why cats are undertreated for pain when compared to dogs.
Review cat-specific pain assessment and pain scoring systems
and provide tips for implementing pain scoring systems in practice.
Discuss a few favorite drugs/techniques
for both acute & chronic pain therapy in cats.
Emphasize importance of client follow-up
and provide pain assessment resources for the cat-owning client.

Many helpful hints about appropriate dosing and assessing response! I also loved the emphasis on the safety of the medications, and hence, eliminating most hesitations to treat and improve quality of life.
