Objectives The use of physiological parameters such as respiratory rate and heart rate to assess pain has long been discussed. The aim of the study was to compare postoperative respiratory rate and heart rate in cats subjected to flank ovariohysterectomy treated with a preoperative non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) or no NSAID, and determine whether these parameters are suitable for postoperative pain assessment in cats. We hypothesised that cats without an NSAID would experience…

Evaluation of nociception comparing analgesia protocols in cats submitted to elective ovariohisterectomy

Felines have a high potential to produce numerous progenies and the most indicated birth control is the ovariohysterectomy surgical procedure. The procedure causes a postoperative pain process, so an

Absence of measurement is not evidence of absence.

The investigation depended on the hypothesis that cats undergoing ovariohysterectomy without nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) treatment would experience more postoperative pain than those so treated, and the untreated cats would develop higher heart rates and respiratory rates.

Pharmacologic Modulation of Noxious Stimulus-evoked Brain Activation in Cynomolgus Macaques Observed with Functional Neuroimag.

Brain activation suggests the presence of pain depending on the anesthetic agent used, and data suggest that fMRI could be used to noninvasively assess pain and to confirm the analgesic efficacy of currently used anesthetics.

Acute pain in cats: Recent advances in clinical assessment

This article reviews the use, advantages, disadvantages and limitations of the two validated pain scales, and presents a practical, stepwise approach to feline pain recognition and assessment using a dynamic and interactive process.

Multilingual validation of the short form of the Unesp-Botucatu Feline Pain Scale (UFEPS-SF)

The UFEPS-SF and its items, assessed by experienced evaluators, demonstrated very good repeatability and reproducibility, content, criterion and construct validities, item-total correlation, internal consistency, excellent sensitivity and specificity and a cut-off point indicating the need for rescue analgesia in Chinese, French, English, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish.

A comparison between methadone and buprenorphine for perioperative analgesia in dogs and cats undergoing ovariohysterectomy

Serum biochemistry values were similar between the groups, with some differences within groups between the pre-sedation and 20-hour values, but there were no significant differences for pain and sedation scores.

In the present study, methadone appeared to be a better postoperative analgesic than butorphanol and provided effective analgesia for 6 hours following ovariohysterectomy in most cats.

Kittens had similar wound tenderness, but less affective pain than adults, and reproductive status had no effect, in comparison with adults.
