Signs of Pain in Pets

Identifying signs of pain in your pet is crucial for timely intervention. Common indicators include:

  • Change in appetite
  • Restlessness or agitation
  • Vocalization (whimpering, whining, or meowing)
  • Limping or favoring one leg
  • Hiding or withdrawal
  • Aggression or irritability

If you notice any of these signs in your pet, it’s essential to consult with our experienced veterinarians for a thorough evaluation and personalized pain management plan.
