"This ground-breaking and extremely clinician-friendly book constitutes a wonderfully practical handbook for instigating and maintaining a best practice approach to pain management. At the same time it is an invaluable, easy to use, quick reference for drug dosages and protocols pre-operatively, post-operatively and in the consulting room."
Debbie Doyle, MA, VetMB, MRCVS, in VETcpd
"Finally I have found a book that does not only talk about pain but also talks specifically about feline pain! A useful guide to understanding the physiology of pain and pharmacokinetics of both drugs and nutraceuticals. It offers the knowledge that allows us to assess and monitor our patients and better understand what the best options available to manage the identified problems are. It provides multiple resources links including the ISFM and AAFP guidelines on long-term use of NSAIDs. ... Great book for those who want a guide to understanding the phenomenon of pain and its management. Good presentation of available resources supported by a thorough literature review. Much more than just a ‘painkillers recipe book’."
