Welcome to Elements of Oncology—a column that addresses the many components of diagnosing, managing, treating, and monitoring veterinary cancer patients. This new column begins with a series of two articles that describe strategies for cancer pain management in dogs and cats, with an overall goal of raising awareness among the veterinary community about treating cancer pain early and recognizing that cancer pain can be considerably different from other types of acute or chronic pain.

Controlling cancer pain should always be part of a cancer treatment plan. Pain management should be implemented as soon as possible following diagnosis to address existing pain and prevent onset of new pain.

Even if the patient has no outward, objective clinical signs of pain, the practitioner should assume that any tumor has the potential to cause subclinical pain, and pain management should be considered as part of the therapeutic plan. This is an important concept in the veterinary profession because our patients are unable to communicate their level of pain directly.
