Global Pain Council Guidelines

The Global Pain Treatise is a downloadable, practical resource to assist practitioners around the world by providing guidance in recognizing and assessing pain accompanied by management protocols for a wide range of painful conditions. Because it also provides guidance on scenarios where analgesic agents are limited, it helps to empower veterinarians in these countries to recognize and treat pain, regardless of their limitations.
