Is your dog in pain and how would you know?
Dogs do their best to hide any pain or injury so as not to be seen as the weak member of our pack.
As a result, you may not know your dog is in pain until it has become too much for them to conceal it any longer. It is important for us as dog owners to be able to read the subtle signs that your dog is in pain despite their best efforts to keep it from you. The following is some of the things you may have noticed but not realised that they signalled pain in your dog.
Symptoms of pain may manifest as:
• Limping, unable to fully weight bear on one or more legs
• Having difficulty jumping on / off the sofa or into the car
• Character changes, grumpy with people or dogs
• Appearing to age overnight
• Problems getting up or lying down
• No longer keen to go for a walk
• Performance issues, eg dropping poles, missing entries
It is possible to see improvements in all the areas listed and many more. Please visit our page entitled: Benefits of Therapeutic Canine Massage for a more detailed account of the results you can hope to achieve with Canine Massage Therapy.
