Animal Pain Awareness Month

"There's no better way to know if your dog is experiencing something painful than to bring your pet to the vet for a check-up."

Pain is something not only we deal with, but also our pets.

They also experience pain as we do and it comes in many different forms like health-related pain, surgical pain, anxiety, depression, etc.

The month of September is considered Animal Pain Awareness Month, where this month is intended to educate and raise awareness among pet parents and pet enthusiasts about discomfort in animals.

It is also aimed to help people understand better their pets' pains for better pain management and improved quality of life.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED

Discuss. Communicating with other people is a great way to be able to spread the word and raise awareness. Exchanging experiences and knowledge with family, friends and even to strangers about your own episodes of struggles and triumph on your pet's pain management can go a long way.

Go see your vet.There's no better way to know if your dog is experiencing something painful than to bring your pet to the vet for a check-up. A trip to the vet will give you a proper diagnosis and proper treatment plan for any health issues and concerns your fur-baby may be having.

PAIN-PROOFING YOUR PET

Keep a close eye. Observing your pet's behavior and any physical abnormalities (like limping, inflammation, etc) is one way to pain-proof your pet before the situation gets any worse.

If you observe any, seek medical attention immediately for proper diagnosis and proper treatment plan.

Prevention is better than cure. As a pet parent, you can help your fur-baby avoid certain kinds of pain like joint pain, oral pain by maintaining your dog's weight and dental hygiene.

Nutrition is key. Providing your fur-baby with a healthy diet jam-packed with essential nutrients will help the body function well. A balanced diet is important for your fur-baby because he needs proper nutrition to run, jump, play and give snuggles effectively. Without good nutrition, your fur-baby is more prone to diseases and pain!
