Client handout: Will my pet be in pain?

Use this handout to build pet owners' awareness about pain in their pets.

Pets need your help to get the care they need to live happy, healthy and comfortable lives. And an important step to meet that goal is to manage their pain. The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management (IVAPM) will celebrate Animal Pain Awareness Month in September 2015 with veterinary professionals around the world. The campaign is intended to raise pet owners’ awareness and recognition of both acute and chronic pain in animals. Use this client handout to start a pain management conversation with pet owners.
