Currently, approaches to pain control in horses are a mixture of art and science. Recognition of overt pain behaviours, such as rolling, kicking at the abdomen, flank watching, lameness, or blepharospasm, may be obvious; subtle signs of pain can include changes in facial expression or head position, location in the stall, and response to palpation or human interaction.

Currently, approaches to pain control in horses are a mixture of art and science. Recognition of overt pain behaviours, such as rolling, kicking at the abdomen, flank watching, lameness, or blepharospasm, may be obvious; subtle signs of pain can include changes in facial expression or head position, location in the stall, and response to palpation or human interaction. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (i.e. phenylbutazone, flunixin meglumine, firocoxib), opioids (i.e. butorphanol, morphine, buprenorphine), and alpha-2 adrenergic agonists (i.e. xylazine, detomidine, romificine, medetomidine) comprise the most commonly used therapeutic options. Multimodal therapy utilising constant rate infusions of lidocaine, ketamine, and/or butorphanol has gained popularity for severe pain in hospitalised patients. Drugs targeting neuropathic pain, such as gabapentin, are increasingly used for conditions such as laminitis. Optimal strategies for management of pain are based upon severity and chronicity, including special considerations for use of intra-articular or epidural delivery and therapy in foals. Strategies should also aim to mitigate adverse effects associated with use of various analgesic agents are briefly discussed.
