Rodents of all species are frequently kept as companion animals, with increasing client expectations for the care of their animals. Fortunately, specialist veterinary interest and information is now available for treatment of rodents. In the field of rodent analgesia particularly, much can be learned from the methods developed for preventing and alleviating pain in animals undergoing research studies in laboratories throughout the world. This article reviews advances in pain detection techniques in rodents and makes recommendations on analgesic agents that are available for the alleviation of pain. © 2011 Elsevier Inc.
