    Description

    Veterinary medicine has, throughout its history, emulated human medicine. Much of the current sophistication in veterinary care has been the
    result of reworking and reapplying human medical techniques in animals. Unfortunately, pain, pain relief, and pain medicine present challenges.
    The focus in both human and veterinary medicine has shifted away from the art of medicine to evidence based decisions or the science of medicine. Science is objective and can be measured. Pain, on the other hand, is a uniquely subjective experience—the antithesis of objective science. Regardless, veterinarians should employ techniques and therapies that represent best knowledge. Also, emulating a physician’s focus on preserving life hascaused veterinarians to emphasize life quantity in deference to life quality.

    Trust the Handbook of Veterinary Pain Management, 3rd Edition to help you meet the increasing need for effective pain management in the animals you treat.
