What are the symptoms to watch for to see if my elderly dog is in chronic pain. Obviously, limping is one. Growling or snarling at the touch of a tender area is another. But I'm talking more about pain as in arthritis or just achiness. My dog (cocker spaniel) is 15-1/2 years old and has been taking Deramaxx for a few years. I took her off of it and I see that she is doing more panting but it is also much warmer in our house, as it is summer now. Could her panting also be an indication that she is in pain. Should I put her back on Deramaxx?
I'VE NOTICED THAT MOST OF THESE QUESTIONS GO UNANSWERED. IS THERE A REASON FOR THAT? IS THERE A PURPOSE FOR THIS DISCUSSION BOARD IF THERE IS NO PROFESSIONAL AVAILABLE, ON A DAILY BASIS, TO ADDRESS ISSUES BROUGHT TO THE DISCUSSION TABLE?
Thermal imaging could tell if your dog was in pain....it diagnoses referred pain in horses, cats, elephants....I am sure it can help dogs!
