Session Overview

Delve into the latest research surrounding the complex nature of animal pain in this webinar. Join accomplished Veterinary Technician Specialist (VTS), Stephen Cital, as he shares his vast knowledge and expertise in anesthesia and pain management. 

Over the past few years, scientists have made significant efforts to gain a deeper understanding of how animals experience pain. While certain studies suggest that animals exhibit pain perception similar to humans, other research challenges this notion. Join us as we explore the available evidence and learn how to interpret the behavior and biological responses of our animal patients by examining the extensive literature across various species.

Additionally, we will explore the evolving concept of the human-animal bond and its connection to the experience of pain. Don’t miss this opportunity to broaden your understanding of animal pain and enhance your ability to provide compassionate care to your patients.
