Pain and inflammation are common problems for the veterinary clinician. This learning module introduces the following classes of drugs used to manage these problems: general anesthetics, local anesthetics, dissociative and other injectable anesthetics, opioids, cannabinoids, gabapentin, nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs and glucocorticoids. Clinical case problems are presented to evaluate understanding of the concepts. This module includes 25 short videos of a total duration of 6.4 hours, with contributions by Dr. David Villar, board-certified veterinary toxiologist, Dr. Duncan Ferguson, board-certified small animal internist and veterinary clinical pharmacologist, and Dr. Jennifer Davis, board-certified large animal internist and veterinary clinical pharmacologist.
