Abstract

Better understanding the signs of pain in donkeys will help improve their welfare by allowing more effective application of pain relief when it is needed. Pain is common in working donkeys but it has been poorly investigated. Behaviour on its own poses limitation because donkey do not allways show obvious signs of pain. This paper proposes and outlines an approach to using pain-relevant pathologies to enhance our understanding of the clinical and behavioural signs of pain.
