If your pet is exhibiting signs of pain, contact your pet’s veterinarian (or a veterinary emergency practice) and be prepared to discuss the signs of pain, duration of symptoms (how long have you noticed the signs?), and any recent history or information that may help pinpoint the cause of pain. Your pet’s doctor will take it from there.
