Dogs can experience pain in different ways and for different reasons. In order to help your dog find relief from pain, you first must recognize that your dog is experiencing pain. Pain in dogs is often difficult to diagnose and so it can be difficult to help your dog experience pain relief. A dog in pain will instinctively hide the pain it is feeling. While this may be helpful for dogs in the wild, it makes it hard for you diagnose pain in your domesticated dog. A dog’s behaviour may change as a result of pain and relief from the pain will allow your dog to return to it’s usual, loving self.
If your dog is acting out aggressively, biting or scratching, whining or whimpering for no apparent reason or is unusually restless or unresponsive, then your dog may have pain that needs relief. Dogs in need of ouch relief may react aggressively to normal interaction, such as petting, to hide pain. Dogs in pain may also have trouble eating or sleeping, flatten their ears against their heads, lick continually a certain part of the body or demand an unusual amount of attention.
If you notice these symptoms, help your dog find pain relief as early as possible. Monitor your dog’s exercise; pain may require you to reduce your dog’s exercise. This means it is important for your dog to maintain a healthy diet, to avoid weight gain. In most breeds you should be able to easily feel your dog’s ribs without them being easily visible and without the hipbones being visible.
