VN Knowledge | Pain Relief for Exotics: Truth and Lies

Molly Varga discusses recognition of pain in different species, as well as the differences in neural pain pathways in order to then provide a scientific and practical basis for providing analgesia to the less well-known species.

This webinar is intended for all nurses who are engaged with seeing and treating exotic pets. The recognition of pain in different species, as well as the differences in neural pain pathways will be discussed in order to then provide a scientific and practical basis for providing analgesia to the less well-known species. The drugs that can be used will be discussed as well as the dosing and dosing intervals, and how to monitor for efficacy and side effects. A discussion of less commonly used methodologies such as acupuncture, K laser and physiotherapy techniques will also be included.

The rationale behind this lecture is both to promote welfare of exotic pets and also to reduce morbidity and mortality surrounding painful episodes and to reduce hospitalisation and recovery times.

ALL WEBINARS ARE FREE FOR BVNA MEMBERS. www.vnknowledge.co.uk
