Mobility

Is my pet in pain or just getting old?

To help identify signs of pain in older pets that are often mistaken for old age, take our quizzes or watch the video to see if your pet is suffering from mobility-related pain.

As cats and dogs get older, there are many visible signs of them aging, such as greying around the muzzle, sleeping more and exercising less. There are also subtler signs that are commonly mistaken for signs of aging, that are actually signs of pain, including behavioural changes as well as alterations to your pet’s physical activities.

If you have a pet over the age of 7, please take a couple of minutes to complete one of our quizzes, which can help you identify some common signs of joint pain, or watch the video below.
