Unlike people, pets in pain rarely whine or groan. Instead, you may notice that the dog is slower to get up in the morning or the cat can’t jump on the furniture as easily. Sometimes they sleep more or their appetite changes. Often a painful pet finds it difficult to go the bathroom and has accidents in the house. If you think that your pet may be painful, visit your veterinarian, there are many ways available to help your pet to live a more comfortable life.
