This course will build on the knowledge of pain in veterinary patients acquired in Block V. We will address the prevention, recognition, and treatment of pain in a variety of species, including dogs, cats, horses, production animals, and non-traditional species. Species-specific pain scoring systems will be introduced. Both pharmacologic (including locoregional analgesic/ anesthetic techniques) and non-pharmacologic treatment of acute pain (e.g., surgical, traumatic) and chronic pain (e.g., cancer, degenerative diseases, laminitis, and other pathologies) will be presented. Grade is dependent on class attendance, completion of a weekly computer module that will allow students to work through actual pain medicine cases, a case-based final examination (open-book), and submission of a course evaluation.
