Understanding When Your Pet is Hurting

If dogs could talk, they'd be able to tell us where they have aches and pains. Since their communication is limited to tail wags, paw shakes, facial expressions and body language, it's up to us to pay attention to a change in behavior that may indicate they're in pain.

Nationwide pet insurance's on-staff veterinarians teamed up with the Pet HealthZone to narrow down the list of some of the most painful conditions dogs can experience. Unfortunately, some of these health conditions have a high occurrence rate in dogs.
