Pain Recognition


The robust measurement of pain in non-verbal species is the Holy Grail for veterinary science and for clinical trials.

Join a free webinar on 24th January (1pm BST), run by the animal pain and wellbeing specialists at to hear the latest thinking on acute pain measurement in companion animals. 

Learn about the consequences of poor recognition of pain; the Glasgow CMPS–SF for the measurement of acute pain in dogs, and the CMPS-Feline for cats. These are reliable, validated, decision-making tools for use in general practice, adding objective measurement to a clinician's judgement.

The importance of an intervention level for analgesia in clinical practice/rescue point in clinical trials cannot be overemphasised. These tools provide a standardised scoring system for use across multicentre trial sites.
