Abstract: A clinical survey was conducted among 262 veterinarians practicing in the Bangladesh to assess views on pain evaluation and management in dogs and cats. Majority of the vets practice on pet dogs and cats were young male and freshly graduated who use their academic knowledge during practice. The majority of the vets suggest meloxicam in dogs 66.79% and cats 52.67% as NSAID. Ketoprofen was the second most choice in both orthopedic and muscular injuries. Among the steroids and opioids, dexamethasone and tramadol were recorded respectively as first choice. In most cases of worst pain, dexamethasone was the primary choice. Usual duration of analgesic therapy recorded was less than three-days. In most cases, vets suggest H2 blockers in association with meloxicam and ketoprofen to reduce adverse effects. Vomition and diarrhea were recorded as mostly occurring side effects following medication with analgesics. The current study reviewed the present scenario of pain management in dogs and cats in Bangladesh. Further studies are required involving more vets and detailed information on cases and response to analgesic therapy
