Is my pet in pain?

Our pets are all very good at hiding pain and illness.  This can make it very difficult for you ,and sometimes even veterinary professionals, to determine if your pet is painful.  We use pain scales to help determine the severity of your pets pain.  These scales can also help you determine if your pet is painful at home.
