Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia serves as the official journal for the Association of Veterinary Anaesthetists (AVA), the American College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia (ACVAA), and the European College of Veterinary Anaesthesia and Analgesia (ECVAA). Its primary objective is to provide accessible and trustworthy resources in the field of veterinary anaesthesia, analgesia, and matters concerning animal ethics and welfare.

This content encompasses clinical and basic science research studies, pre-approved research protocols, systematic, scoping and narrative review articles, special features, historical insights, critically appraised topics, editorials, case reports, "case of the month", letters to the editor, and book reviews.
