Daniel Pang completed his veterinary degree in 2000 at the University of Bristol. This was followed by a year in small animal practice in England and an internship at the University of Glasgow's School of Veterinary Medicine. He then embarked on a residency in veterinary anaesthesia at the University of Montreal. During this time he undertook a range of clinical and basic research, completing a MSc in nitric oxide use during cardiopulmonary bypass. He attained Diplomate status of the European (ECVAA) and American (ACVA) colleges of veterinary anaesthesia in 2006 and 2007, respectively. He obtained his PhD from Imperial College London in 2011 and joined the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Calgary in 2010.
Our research focuses on the assessment of pain and welfare in both laboratory (rodents) and companion (cats and dogs) animals. We develop and apply novel techniques to investigate behaviours associated with pain and use these to study the effective use of analgesics, with the goal of improving care through effective pain management. Our welfare work is centred on the development of humane euthanasia techniques in laboratory species.
