Back Pain

Pay attention to any changes in your pet’s behavior, such as reluctance to move, decreased activity, stiffness, difficulty or hesitation when jumping or climbing stairs, or vocalization when touched or moved.

Schedule an appointment with a veterinarian to have your pet examined. The veterinarian will conduct a thorough physical examination, possibly including diagnostic tests such as X-rays or blood work, to determine the cause of your pet’s back pain. They may prescribe pain medications, anti-inflammatory drugs, and muscle relaxants or recommend physical therapy or other treatment options based on their findings.
