Offering and providing adequate pain management enhances patient quality of life, improves the human–animal bond, encourages the team, and benefits the practice. For veterinarians who wish to improve their approach to pain management, the following strategies are a good place to start.

Use the pain management algorithm [Figure 1] to aid in pain identification, prevention, and management. Develop anesthetic protocols to include pain prevention, using appropriate agents at specific times. Involve and train the whole veterinary team in pain management protocols. Discuss common case examples. Develop and provide scoring and assessment tools. Teach team members to use open-ended questions during their history-taking with clients to maximize the team's understanding of each patient's situation.

Educate pet owners as described previously, starting when the animal is young. Develop written materials for client education. Begin developing the client's awareness of the importance of identifying and treating pain whenever it occurs.

The profession's understanding of pain management is evolving with new agents and techniques and the application of evidence-based medicine. The need to be open to these changes and challenges is essential. It is hoped that this document provides a framework to approaching and managing pain and to understanding the challenges that face the profession in the future.
