Description

Cancer pain can be debilitating and dramatically affect quality of life in veterinary patients. It is multifaceted and reflects pain from not only the tumor burden, but from treatment-related side effects as well. Ineffective management of cancer pain can prevent completion of therapy and may prompt owners to end their pet’s suffering through humane euthanasia. This talk will focus on mechanisms of cancer pain, receptors that serve as targets for pain management, and how to develop a multimodal analgesic plan to improve effectiveness and quality of life.

Objectives

Objectives
Pets are living longer with the nod going to better nutrition and improvements in both preventative and advanced health care. With longer life, however, the prevalence of cancer in our veterinary patients also continues to rise, subsequently leading to a rise in cancer-related pain. Pain is defined as an “unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage,” and is the conscious experience of nociception.
