In the wild, many animals instinctively hide pain as a survival mechanism. We now understand more about how animals feel pain. Research shows pain management helps improve the recovery process, whether from illness, injury or surgery. As it reduces stress and increases a sense of well being, pain management helps your pet live longer.

Pain in pets can be categorized as acute pain and chronic pain. Acute pain is temporary and could be a result of an injury, surgery or infection. Pain that lasts more than 2 weeks is considered chronic. Dental issues, cancer, osteoarthritis are some of the common sources of chronic pain. It is important to treat this pain early before it becomes harder to control.

Signs of pain include:

  • Walking with a stiff gait, especially after getting up
  • Rising slowly or lie down in a collapsing way
  • Sitting or standing in unusual ways
  • Trembling
  • Being inactive and/or depressed
  • Making pain indicating sounds
  • Acting out of character
  • Inappropriate elimination
  • Constant licking a particular part of the body
