Anesthesiology and pain management

This section considers submissions covering all areas of anesthesia and analgesia in all animals, including companion, laboratory, and zoo animals. Articles concerning basic science, the pathophysiology of disease and its relation to anesthetic management, intensive care, anesthetic equipment and monitoring, chemical restraint of animals, and the welfare implications of animals in pain or distress, are also considered.  

Head and neck disorders

This section considers research describing the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of veterinary disorders of the head and neck, including ear, nose and throat (ENT) disorders and dental and oral diseases. Research describing the anatomy of the head and neck and imaging are also considered. 

Soft tissue surgery

The soft tissue surgery section considers submissions demonstrating advances in soft tissue surgery, reconstructive surgery, and wound care and healing. This section also considers research describing the application of advanced surgical techniques and technologies in veterinary clinical practice, such as minimally invasive surgery.
