The inability to talk does not diminish an animal's ability to experience pain, although it may hinder its recognition and therefore lead to the under‐treatment of pain. Pain assessment and treatment in horses has advanced considerably with the recent publication of numerous research papers in this area. This review will summarise these research findings and suggest how advances in knowledge of perioperative pain management can be implemented in equine clinical practice.
