Easily identify acute pain in cats & dogs with our NEW pain assessment tools

We know how challenging it can be to recognise signs of pain and painful animals can be missed, suffering as a result.

Our NEW pain assessment tools are quick, reliable and easy-to-use to help you assess acute pain in cats and dogs.

Simply open the relevant PDF, and, observing the animal in real time, complete the fields to be guided through to a final pain score that will suggest if the administration of analgesics should be considered.
