NOVEL COST-EFFECTIVE ANESTHETIC AND ANALGESIC TECHNIQUES

 

DENTAL PAIN

Surprisingly, very little is known about dental pain in cats. These cutting-edge studies present specific behaviors before and after dental extractions in cats. We showed that dental care with tooth extractions can produce severe pain in cats requiring prolonged analgesic administration.

NEUROPATHIC PAIN

Neuropathic pain can severely affect the quality of life of animals. Studies are being performed in dogs and cats to better understand this condition.

 

PAIN MANAGEMENT SURVEYS

Using questionnaires, we asked pet owners from Canada and the United States about their perceptions and opinions related to surgical pain, perioperative pain management and anesthesia in small animals.

 
 
VIDEOS OF LOCAL ANESTHETIC TECHNIQUES IN SMALL ANIMALS

A series of open-access videos teaching how to perform local anesthetic techniques was published on the YouTube channel of the Faculté de médecine vétérinaire, Université de Montréal.
