Obviously, dogs can’t talk, at least not like humans do. This communication barrier sometimes makes it difficult, especially when it comes to evaluating your dog's health or possible illness.
Here are a few of the most common signs that a dog is experiencing some level of discomfort:
- Reluctance to move or walk
- Tense abdominal muscles
- Stiff neck
- Limping or lameness
- Flinching when an area is touched and/or crying
If you suspect your dog is in pain, you should schedule an appointment with your veterinarian.
