With a focus on veterinary pain management, this practical, quick-reference handbook provides an overview of pain and analgesia issues in small animals and horses. It offers comprehensive, concise coverage of important topics such as the recognition and assessment of pain, pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic pain management techniques, pain management for acute and chronic conditions, and the ethics of pain control. Clear explanations and descriptions are incorporated in an easy-to-use outline format, with visual diagrams for local and regional anesthetic techniques. Up-to-date drug facts and protocols, as well as an easily accessible drug dose table, put essential information within easy reach. Additionally, specific case scenarios detail the use of multiple modalities for acute and chronic pain control in the clinical setting.

There is a considerable amount of information in this small and relatively reasonably priced book, its compact dimensions belying the page numbers held within. The style is concise with a good use of bullet points. There are few books available with such a comprehensive coverage of material related to analgesia.
