Signs of Pain in Pets

Just as there are a wide variety of manifestations of pain in humans, so are there for animals. Some people tolerate dental work very stoically and honestly don’t mind it that much while the same procedure is unadulterated torture for others. Similarly, we have observed that if you cut a toe nail too short on one dog, he might simply pull his paw away while another dog might shriek so loud that an entire block will wonder what animal abuse has just taken place! Learn to read your pet’s secret signs of pain so you can find the right treatment.
