Dogs with noise sensitivity should be routinely assessed for pain by vets

Rss Bot


Dogs which show fear or anxiety when faced with loud or sudden noises should be routinely assessed for pain by veterinarians, according to new research. Researchers believe that pain, which could be undiagnosed, could be exacerbated when a noise makes the dogs tense up or 'start', putting extra stress on muscles or joints which are already inflamed leading to and associated with a loud or startling noise.OqzdUaVRZIE

After age 15 when Carrington started to lose his hearing, he would become startled at sudden, high-pitched noises. These seemed to be the only sounds he was able to hear and I'm guessing that in his acclimation to his increasingly silent world, these sounds were a strange intrusion. Even the clicking of a kitchen cabinet door-latch would cause a reaction. I soon learned to close each door quietly, and in the street, I would avoid walking him by loud garbage trucks, etc. as best I could.
