As the head of clinical anesthesia services, Dr. Stuart Clark-Price oversees the sedation, anesthesia, or other forms of pain management of all patients undergoing surgery or other procedures at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. That means his patients could be cats, birds, horses, llamas-you name it. He also has done research on how to anesthetize tigers.

Dr. Stuart Clark-Price is one of a small number of veterinarians who are board certified in more than one specialty; his credentials are in internal medicine and veterinary anesthesia. He has contributed chapters to two veterinary textbooks: "Anesthesia for Field Emergencies" in Equine Emergencies Treatment and Procedures and "Anesthesia for Patients in Renal Disease" in Essentials of Small Animal Anesthesia and Analgesia. He also serves as a reviewer of scientific articles published in three journals: Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association, Veterinary Anesthesia and Analgesia, and the Journal of Herpetological Medicine and Surgery.

His research interests include body temperature regulation in small animals during anesthesia, new ways to assess recovery from anesthesia in horses, and immobilization and anesthesia of tigers.

At the College of Veterinary Medicine, he teaches "Veterinary Anesthesia and Fluid Therapy course and Pharmacology." At home, he counts among his pets two rat terriers and twelve turtles.
