6 Ways to Tell if your Dog is Feeling Pain

Since dogs can’t really directly talk to use, we have to understand what they’re going through by observing their behavior. Certain behaviors could indicate how your dog is feeling, especially when it comes to pain. Whether you have a pure breed of a mixed breed, keep an eye out for these behaviors to tell if your dog is feeling unwell and in pain.
Ways to Tell if your Dog is Feeling Pain
Weakness

Weakness is the most common sign of pain. If your dog is usually active, but starts acting and looking weak, there’s something wrong with them. Observe the way they walk and move if they limp or not.  Listen to them if they yelp if a certain part of their body is touched or moved.

Change in Appetite

If your dog starts to lose their appetite, it could be an indicator for pain, especially in their digestive track. Others might even feel too weak to eat or walk over to their food bowl. If you notice this, make sure that the dog stays hydrated and take it to the very right away for a check-up.

Excessive Grooming

Dogs commonly groom themselves by licking. But if they seem of obsess over a certain area, there’s a possibility that they feel some kind of pain or irritation there. It’s possible that they could have cut themselves there or a rash or skin issue developed and they feel irritated. Check the area where they tend to groom a lot. If there’s an irritation place some ointment or skin cream on it.

Heavy Panting

Although dogs normally do pant heavily, especially when they’re excited or after some exercise, heavy panting when they’re just sitting and resting could mean that they’re in pain. This could possibly be stressed induced or they’re having problems breathing.

Shyness

If your dog is normally happy and nice around other people and dogs, a change in the way they act may be caused by pain or any other physical problem. They might start acting unwelcoming and hide away in in the corner or under furniture. They’d keep hiding even when you call them or give them a treat.

Aggression

When the dog starts acting aggressively towards you and they’re usually not like that, it’s possible that they feel pain. Dogs would protect themselves by avoiding contact and even act aggressively toward others when they’re not feeling to well. When they become too aggressive, you might need to restrain them and place them inside a cage or crate for their own safety.

Benefits of Neutering or Spaying Pit Bulls ..

If you decide that you want to spay/neuter your dog, it can be an environmentally beneficial decision. There are too many dogs out there in need of homes. You are adding to the surplus of canines by reproducing you pet. If you go about it responsibly, it’s understandable in your desire to procreate your canine pal. By surgically removing your pets reproductive parts, you are also helping him/her avoid certain health problems. Female canines are likely to develop tumors in their mammary glands, spaying a female dog would demolish this fear of cancer. Diseases that relate to the testicles and uterus can be avoided by neutering or spaying your pit-bull. Upon preforming this surgery, your dog will be noticeably calmer. If you have a hyper active dog that can sometimes get on your nerves, this method will surely calm the little guy down. Your dog will also be much cleaner. A female will discharge blood if she is not spayed. It can be a hassle to clean up, the mess can be avoided, and she will also be cleaner if you spay her. In the long run, you will save money by neutering/spaying your dog. If they do develop health problems like tumors, it will be costly for a surgery. Also, you will need to have the funds to provide care for the new born puppies as well.

Drawbacks of Neutering or Spaying Pit Bulls

Along with the positive sides of neutering/spaying your pit-bull, there are also certain drawbacks as well. The most obvious drawback is that your dog will not be able to reproduce. Although this is the most obvious reason, some people tend to miss it. Although hyperactivity will be decreased, it can be seen in a negative light. Some trainers prefer active dogs. Neutering/spaying will in fact make your dog a little lazy and this can often cause the little guy to put on a few more pounds. There is also always the risk of the actual surgical procedure being done. Surgery can have complications, but the procedure will be done as safely as possible.

Neutering or Spaying Pit Bulls | Is it a good decision?

In the end, whether you choose to go through with spaying/neutering you dog, it is completely in your hands. If you have the capability to take care of your dog in any condition, good or bad, you are a better candidate for breeding your dog. If you don’t have the time or money to even take care of you current canine, may be it is not such a good idea that you breed your dog. Whatever is done, always ensure that you take care of your dog to the best of your ability.
