Watch Their Response to Exercise

When you take your dog for a walk or play with them in the yard, watch how they move or if they are limping. For your cat, you can see if they are having difficulty moving around the house or if you see them struggling to get on furniture that they usually get to with no issues.

Head-to-Toe Massages

To help your pet deal with pain, you can either massage them or schedule a massage therapy session for them. A professional massage can not only deal with the problem, but an experienced therapist, like the ones from Paradise Point Animal Hospital, can figure out if there are other areas that need relief.

Monitor Diet Carefully

Knowing what condition is causing your pet some pain can be helpful. Also, make sure that the food you are giving your pet is not perpetuating their pain, especially if the condition is related to their stomach.

Check In With a Vet When Needed

There are some things that cannot be left to chance, and chronic pain is one of them. Make sure you take your pet to the vet if you are noticing that they are suffering or having a rough time. It’s better to receive the help early and have your pet be on route to a speedy recovery!
