“The information in this book is more extensive and diverse than that found in other currently available books. It fills a much-needed void in a rapidly expanding area of veterinary medicine.” (Doody’s, 3 October 2014)
"‘The veterinary profession has begun to make pain management a priority’ is the opening line to the chapter ‘Integrating pain management into veterinary practice’, and I couldn’t agree more. The publication of a textbook dedicated to all aspects of pain management presented in an easily accessible format will be an excellent addition to any practice’s library.” (Veterinary Record, 16 August 2014)
“It is practical, well-illustrated, and gives information on analgesia in a variety of species.” (Vets Today, 1 August 2014)
“Overall, the text is well written; the chapters are logically organized, and information is easily accessible. The book is reasonably priced and will be an excellent addition to any veterinarian’s library and very useful to veterinary students and technicians as well.” (Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, 15 June 2014)
“Benefitting from the contribution of more than 40 international expert authors, this excellent book provides a huge amount of up to date, evidence-based theoretical and practical information on pain management in veterinary practice and should definitely find its place on the bookshelf of all practitioners interested in better understanding and treating pain in their patients (aren’t we all??).” (European Journal of Companion Animal Practice, 1 July 2014)
“The result is a fine survey highly recommended for any working with animals.” (Midwest Book Review, 1 June 2014)
“Pain Management in Veterinary Practice is a reference for veterinary offices and practitioners and considers the physiology and pathophysiology of all kinds of animal pain, from large to exotic species. Expect more from this than an overview of pain medications and their administration and management: chapters cover techniques for complimentary treatments from acupuncture to massage and physical therapy, consider nutrition's role in pain management, and provide specific advice for specific kinds of pain. The result is a veterinary handbook recommended for any practitioner.” (Midwest Book Review, 1 April 2014)
