how do you tell a dog is in pain?
I know it sounds stupid, and I don't mean it to sound stupid or silly.
Allie has been spayed on Thursday, and I have been caring for her. She is on rimadyl(sp) and also tramadal. She seemed to be doing good, so I stopped the tramadol yesterday morning. She seemed fine yesterday.
Today, she is laying down, and she is wagging her tail nervously, and tummy is rising and falling quickly. I think that is a signal of her pain? I am not sure.. she doesn't whine or cry for anything. She will bark once in a while, and growl when she wants out, or excited to go bye bye.
So, is this a signal that a dog is in pain??
