Our Mission

To Promote, Enhance, and Advance Pain Management in Animals

The International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management is a multi-disciplinary organization that seeks to promote the acquisition and dissemination of cross-species knowledge related to the biology and clinical treatment of pain in animals.


The Academy seeks to:

  1. Provide forums for communication among all interested parties of knowledge concerning the biology and treatment of animal pain
  2. Provide continuing education in the area of pain recognition and treatment
  3. Establish a process whereby veterinarians with a special interest in the area of animal pain management can meet a set of prescribed objectives that will ultimately lead to certification in the management of animal pain.
  4. Promote humane, scientific investigation into the biology of animal pain and the assessment of the efficacy of defined treatment modalities.
