Often our dogs suffer in silence. Because dogs cannot speak, it can sometimes be difficult to spot when they’re in pain, whether it is as a result of injury or an underlying issue. However, there are a number of signs, some more obvious than others, which can indicate pain in dogs. If your dog is in pain they may:

  • Show signs of agitation.
  • Cry out, yelp or growl.
  • Be sensitive to touch or resent normal handling.
  • Become grumpy and snap at you.
  • Be quiet, less active or hide.
  • Limp or be reluctant to walk.
  • Become depressed and stop eating.
  • Have rapid, shallow breathing and an increased heart rate.

If you find something that seems worrisome or the odd behaviour continues, see a vet immediately to diagnose the problem.
