Zac is a rescue dog from Tunisia, now living in the UK with his adoptive mom, Sam. In part 3 of Zac’s adventures, we learn that Zac’s dislike of the freezer/garden in the cold of March, keeps him holding his bladder for up to 18 hours! In this funny but touching story of a dog born to the streets of Tunisia, his fear of everything new in his adoptive home in Kent, England, and of his blossoming personality and confidence, we see this wonderful dog evolving to his happier self. But we also see every rescue dog everywhere, doing their best to acclimate to a world of newness and uncertainty, but one filled with love and promise.
How do you know if your dog is in pain? Dr. Edward of The Healing Vet has found that more than 50% (!) of the dogs he’s assessed for pain are suffering and hardly any of their owners know it. In this blog post Dr. Edward discusses how dogs express pain with their body language, and he gives us a list of signs to look for—whether it’s acute or chronic pain. In Part 2 of Dogs in Pain, Dr. Edward will discuss treatments for pain—both conventional and holistic. Coming soon!Dog body language, Dogs in pain, Signs of pain, Silent suffering
