About 81 percent of team members report their practice is up-to-date with the latest pain protocols, according to the 2013 Firstline Veterinary Team Trends Study. And that's something to brag about when you talk to pet owners. At your next team meeting, brainstorm ways you can educate clients about pain management in pets. Consider these resources:

> Start by passing out the pain prevention handout at http://dvm360.com/painform.

> Then use the handy Facebook posts and tweets at http://dvm360.com/socialpain.

> Finally, check out the resources from the pain prevention toolkit with videos and tools for your practice at http://dvm360.com/toolkit.
