Opioid backorders and shortages have been affecting veterinary medicine for the last few years. It is the hot topic of blogs, social media posts, anesthesia groups, and staff meetings everywhere. There are other options! This lecture will discuss the current predicament and offer solutions that will still provide your patients with adequate analgesia using a multi-modal approach. Continuing with the discussion of opioid shortages, it is important more than ever that we learn how to provide locoregional anesthesia whenever possible. This lecture will highlight several blocks that can easily be mastered by veterinary technicians in any type of practice.
