Douleurs animales. 2. Evaluation et traitement de la douleur chez les ruminants

Abstract : Ruminants are sentient beings, endowed with emotional and cognitive abilities, which can perceive different types of pain (nociceptive or neuropathic) in different types of contexts (breeding / experimentation). Assessing pain is often difficult because, in most situations of pain, there is not a unique and specific indicator but rather a set of complementary indicators. An accurate assessment of pain is essential to optimize care and use of the therapeutic arsenal currently available to prescribers. Indeed, the therapeutic arsenal with different mechanisms of action, it is necessary to quantify pain intensity and the type of pain assessment. Through this review, we will show how: i) accurate assessment is essential for optimal management of pain, ii) method of assessment depends on the type of pain that is suspected and can be based on a multiparametric approach, a limited number, or even a single indicator as appropriate.
