About the course

The first webinar in this series sets the scene for subsequent sessions with a focus on pain recognition and pain scoring. We will look at scoring systems both for acute and chronic pain in both dogs and cats and illustrate the use of these systems with case examples. Following this webinar you will be confident in implementing pain scoring in your practice and ready for the next sessions on analgesic drugs.
