It’s important to be able to recognise when your pet is uncomfortable or in pain and could well need to visit a vet.
Visible signs can include:
- Them being agitated
- Not eating
- Limping and mobility issues.
- They may be less active and want to hide away.
- They may have rapid, laboured breathing and not because they’ve just run around in the park!
- Any suspect lumps and bumps should be checked out as soon as possible too.
If you suspect any of these symptoms and your pet is just not behaving in his or her usual manner, it is definitely advisable to make an appointment with your local vet for a check up.
