Is my animal in pain?

Without Dr Doolittle’s ability to speak to the animals we are often left guessing as to whether our animal is in pain.  Signs of pain in our pets are very subtle, particularly in the case of chronic pain.  The following can be symptoms of pain in our pets:

  • Loss of appetite.
  • Restlessness at night.
  • Inability to jump onto furniture or in and out of the car.
  • Inability to cope with slippery surfaces.
  • Reduced exercise tolerance.
  • Change of stance during urination and defecation.
  • Behavioural changes.
