Story at-a-glance

  • It can be challenging for both pet parents and veterinarians to assess pain in dogs, since they can’t tell us if or how much they hurt
  • Signs of pain to watch for in your pet include trembling, favoring a leg, crouching and excessive panting
  • Increasingly, veterinarians are using pain scales to assess discomfort in their patients
  • A recent study suggests dogs who develop noise sensitivity later in life should be assessed for a painful condition
  • Treatment for your dog’s pain will depend on what’s causing it; there are a number of integrative therapies that can be beneficial
