We understand that it can be difficult knowing whether your dog is in pain or discomfort. Your dog isn’t able to tell you what they are feeling or how they have come to be in pain, unlike humans, who can communicate verbally and explain the situation.

There can be many reasons why your dog is experiencing pain or discomfort; they may have injured themselves while out on a walk; be recovering from recent surgery, or they may have an underlining condition which is prompting the discomfort. Some dogs may also show signs of a more physical injury, which can include an open wound, which will be more obvious to see.

Signs your Dog is in Pain

When you are familiar with your dog’s normal behaviour it can be easier to recognise when they are behaving differently from their usual selves. To help you to identify whether your dog is in pain, follow our advice on how to recognise the signs and symptoms.

Any of these signs can indicate why your dog might be in pain. If you begin to notice one of the signs, even if it’s a subtle change, it is worth booking an appointment with a vet to have your dog assessed.
