Pharmacology in Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia

A concise yet comprehensive and usable pharmacological resource for veterinary practitioners

In Pharmacology in Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia, a team of distinguished veterinary practitioners delivers a singular and comprehensive text dedicated to anesthetic drug pharmacology and drug interactions related specifically to anesthetic drugs in a veterinary setting. This concise, easily navigable reference combines information scattered throughout the academic literature and covers mechanisms of action of commonly used drugs in commonly encountered species, drug interactions, and clinical uses of anesthetic drugs.

The volume explores drug metabolism, the effects of various drugs on organ systems, risks of adverse effects, as well as the impact of anesthesia on drugs, and the effects of drugs on anesthesia.

Readers will also find:

  • A thorough introduction to pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and pharmacogenomics in veterinary anesthesia
  • Comprehensive explorations of veterinary regulatory concerns associated with anesthesia and analgesia for food animals
  • Practical discussions of alpha-2 agonists and antagonists, phenothiazines, butyrophenones, benzodiazepines, and opioid agonists and antagonists
  • Fulsome treatments of local anesthetics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, inhalants, and induction drugs

Perfect for veterinary anesthesiologists and criticalists, internists, and surgeons, Pharmacology in Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia will also earn a place in the libraries of private practitioners and veterinary technicians performing anesthesia as well as researchers using veterinary species as a model.
