Welcome to the VASG



PressureEasy Pressure Controller



This site is maintained by veterinary professionals who have made a commitment to anesthetic and pain management excellence. We want this site to be a centralized resource for our colleagues engaged in small animal private practice.

Our focus is on practical guidance; on clinical relevance; on the evidence informed perspective. Our goal is improved patient comfort and safety.

The VASG is about colleagues helping colleagues. We want to help anyone that has an interest in advancing veterinary anesthesia and pain management at the primary care level anywhere in the world.

2014 will see the launch of our Campaign for Myofascial Trigger Point Disease Awareness. Myopain is the least well understood, least well acknowledged chronic pain generator. Unless we understand and manage myopain, our chronic pain therapies will not succeed to the degree that we want them too; our patients will not experience the pain relief that they deserve. Please follow the link below to advance your understanding of myopain.

We welcome suggestions at all times.

Dr. Bob Stein, VASG Founder & Executive Director

You have gone WAY beyond strictly intellectual information about all aspects of analgesia and anesthesia and have distilled this mass of materials and combinations into something a DVM can actually use everyday in just about all situations. W. K., DVM
Thanks for an invaluable website.  There is no other resource in veterinary medicine, remotely as effective as the VASG.  I should have realized that you rely on contributions... I plan to make a yearly donation from now on.  Thanks again for the finest reference in veterinary medicine. J.C., DVM
