How do dogs express pain?

 

The expression of pain by dogs can depend on the dog’s personality and their tolerance to pain. Some animals do not show obvious signs of pain, but this does not mean they are not feeling it!

 

A few clues to help you recognise pain in your dog:

 

  • Altered behaviour: some pets may become restless or even aggressive whereas others may become depressed and withdrawn.
  • Altered movement: some dogs become reluctant to move, stiff, wobbly or even unable to bear weight on an affected limb.
  • Excessive vocalisation: your dog may whine or cry even when comforted or, yelp or groan when a certain area is touched.
  • Altered appetite: decreased or total lack of appetite.

 

 

Key information on OA

 

  • OA is a lifelong, progressive disease which can be successfully managed in the vast majority of cases.
  • Look out for any changes in your dog’s behaviour – OA is not only a disease of older dogs; it can affect dogs of any age.
  • Aim to keep your dog at a healthy bodyweight. Your vet can advise you about the ideal weight for your dog if you are unsure.
  • If you are concerned that your dog has any signs of OA, please arrange a check-up with your vet.
  • If your dog does have OA, make sure you go to regular check-ups with your vet and follow the agreed management strategy. Do not alter your dog’s treatment without consulting your vet first.
