Common Pain Signals in Pets
Decreased mobility and coordination in pets is often blamed on age, but this is not always true. In many cases, lack of activity, limping, and difficulty jumping onto or down from higher surfaces are signs that your pet is experiencing pain.
Dr. Petty works very closely with pet owners to understand every facet of their pet's condition. This includes their pet's breed, size, age, personality, condition, and comprehensive health history. Our goal is to find the treatments that are safest and most effective for every individual pet.
