Evaluating pain in animals is no easy task, as they cannot tell us where or how much they are hurting. In this informative session, Dr. Duncan Lascelles, professor of small animal surgery and pain management at the College of Veterinary Medicine at NC State, will discuss his pioneering research using accelerometers (similar to the wearable fitness trackers used by humans) to access information about movement patterns of domestic cats in their home environments. Lascelles will explain how he uses this data to inform his treatment decisions–from diet to medication–to help manage cats’ pain.

This session is geared toward anyone interested in how veterinarians are using leading-edge technologies, as well as pet owners who want to learn more about what researchers are discovering about chronic pain.

Admission Information

Free and open to the public.  Parking in the lots and deck is free after 5pm.

Other Information

This program is part of the NCSU Libraries Creativity and Technology Symposium (C.A.T.S.).
