Limiting pain in animals: an ethical issue and a major requirement in today's society where animal welfare is gaining increasing importance.

What pain management encompasses

Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience. It is subjective and based primarily on the feelings of the patient, making it even more difficult to quantify and qualify. Nevertheless it becomes a real issue in companion animals and is also a source of particular attention in production animals, where it is associated with inflammation and economic losses.
