Abstract

Opioids are useful drugs for the management of pain in small animal patients. They have a wide therapeutic index and can be administered by a number of different routes. Some of these techniques (e.g., epidural and intra-articular) allow for the production of profound analgesia in a localized area of the body while limiting the dose and the side effects, and others provide a noninvasive method for the delivery of continuous analgesia (e.g., transdermal administration).
