Signs of suffering maybe subtle

Animals naturally hide their pain to protect themselves from predators, pets may be suffering even if they don't show obvious signs. Veterinarians recommend watching for subtle signs of discomfort such as abnormal chewing habits, drastic weight change, avoidance of affection or handling, decreased movement or exercise, excessive licking or biting himself, and uncharacteristic house-soiling. When pet changes behavior, the problem may be medical. Time to see the vet!
