Broadcaster Press 3 March 13, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Veterinarians Updated On Pain Control & Anesthetic Use In Food Animals By Russ Daly, Professor SDSU Extension Veterinarian Providing pain control prior to and following surgical procedures is becoming more commonly accepted - and requested - by producers for their food animals. That was one of the messages brought to veterinarians by Dr. Bob Streeter, a veterinary clinician from Oklahoma State University, during the 2018 James Bailey Herd Health Conference, held February 10, 2018 on the campus of South Dakota State University. Common procedures such as castration and dehorning have long been considered potentially painful for animals, but only relatively recently have products and techniques come to light for veterinarians to use to reduce pain associated with these surgeries. Streeter explained that there are some benefits to the presence of pain: it's the physiologic response that makes the ani- mal protect an injured part of the body, for example. When pain becomes chronic, however, many adverse effects on the animal have been documented, including impaired immune, cardiovascular, digestive, and neurologic functions. Furthermore, for some animals, the physical and psychological stimulation present during some painful conditions can wind itself up to the point where severe stress sets in. Veterinarians commonly use medications to preempt pain in surgical situations. One of the most common examples is the use of local anesthetics to block nerves when preparing for surgery such as a C-section or displaced abomasum correction. However, these medicines are also increasingly being used by veterinarians prior to more minor surgeries such as dehorning and castration. In a similar manner, providing medications that will inhibit pain for hours or days following the procedure is also bethat giving a local nerve block or admincoming more accepted.
