The ability of reptiles to "feel" pain and the significance of pain or nociception on physiologic homeostasis is an exceedingly complex question requiring integration of both physiologic and behavioral evidence. Until further information is available, it would seem most ethical for veterinarians to assume that reptiles are capable of feeling pain, and to treat or manage pain when there is reasonable evidence that pain is present. With increased information available regarding analgesic use in reptiles and with the heightened awareness of the importance of analgesia for zoologic companion animals, it is likely that more veterinarians will provide pain relief to their reptile patients.
