In honor of Animal Pain Awareness Month, join host, RVT, VTS (behavior), certified cat behavior consultant, and Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner, Tabitha Kucera, as she explores the often unnoticed world of pain in our animal companions. Pain is a vital sign that deserves our attention, just like temperature, pulse, and respiration. We'll discuss why pain assessment should be routine for every animal, every time.
Discover the importance of recognizing that pain is unique to each individual animal and why a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work. Learn how behavior can be a powerful indicator of pain, including changes in normal behaviors and the development of new ones.
But it's not enough to identify pain; we'll also explore how animal professionals can help caregivers recognize and advocate for their pets. Together, we can ensure that every animal's pain is acknowledged and addressed, enhancing their well-being and the human-animal bond.
