If your dog is experiencing health problems, they could be trying to warn you that something is wrong.

Dogs can’t speak to us in english, so figuring out if something is wrong can seem like a riddle. But if you take this quiz, and discover your pooch is showing many of these signs, it may be time to listen and take care of your dogs ailments.

1.Constant Grooming

Dogs are known to groom themselves often, it’s part of staying clean. However, if you notice your dog is compulsively cleaning themselves, it may be a sign that something is wrong. Dogs often lick where the pain is on them, even if the pain is internal.

2.Becoming More Vocal

If your dog used to be quiet, but is suddenly extremely vocal and loud, it could be their way of telling you that something is wrong. Commonly, dogs in pain begin to whine for apparently no reason.

3.Loss Of Appetite

Most, if not all, dogs love food. If you notice your dog suddenly is disinterested in his favorite food, or refuses to eat anything, then there’s a good chance that he’s in pain. If not pain, then the symptom could be another disease. If you notice your dog’s appetite has decreased, make sure to consult a vet as soon as possible.


If your dog is normally care free and fun loving, but quickly turns aggressive out of nowhere, he may be responding to pain. Take care when trying to identify pain in an aggravated canine, as they may respond violently when hurt.

5.Difficulty Moving

This one is the most common symptom of dog pain, and the one that most dog owners readily identify as a direct result of pain. If your dog clearly is having difficulties standing up, walking, or even rolling around, it could be debilitating joint pain disabling your friend.
