Anaesthesia and analgesia

Raisis, A.L. and Musk, G.C. (2013) Anaesthesia and analgesia. In: Platt, S. and Olby, N., (eds.) BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Neurology, 4th edition. British Small Animal Veterinary Association, Cheltenham, pp. 409-431.


Patients with neurological disease may require anaesthesia for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures. The manifestations of the neurological condition determine the inherent risk of anaesthesia and whether or not an analgesic plan is required. A balanced anaesthetic approach for patients with neurological disease requires an understanding of the physiology and pathophysiology of the underlying disease process. Every technique should aim to achieve unconsciousness, antinociception and muscle relaxation.
