Pain is a common problem in pets, especially as they age. They often don't make it obvious. The graphic above is a good summary of some things to look for.
Pain in pets can be managed in a variety of ways: adding rugs over slippery surfaces, massage, and physical therapy are a few of them. A variety of medications are also available which are safe and effective. Your veterinarian can help you figure out which approach is best for your pet's particular problem.
The first step is to have them evaluated. And as always, for new patients the first exam at North Hoffman Veterinary Clinic is free. So if you even just suspect your pet might be in pain, there's no reason to wait. Call or stop by today:
