Avian & Exotics
WVC 91st Annual Conference

In order to provide the exotic mammal patient with an appropriate analgesic regime, it is important to realize what kind of situation will cause what kind of pain. In order to monitor the response to analgesia, the veterinarian must be able to recognize and score painful behavior in these cryptic animals.
