Our dogs can also experience neck and back pain, so it is also important to recognise the common signs of back pain in dogs. The only way our dogs can show they are experiencing pain is to give us signs such as:

  • Unlevel gait

  • Stiffness

  • Crab like movement

  • Change in behaviour

  • Asymmetric muscle tone

  • Decrease in performance

  • Dislike certain areas of the body being touched

  • Lethargic

  • Sitting and lying to one side

  • Tripping

  • Uneven claw wear

  • Dragging feet/toes

  • Pacing

  • Unwilling to go for a walk

  • Knocking down poles in agility

  • Unable to stand square comfortably

The possible causes of back pain in dogs are:

  • Falls

  • Road traffic accident

  • Pulling on the lead/harness

  • Playing with other dogs

  • Playing with toys

  • Repetitive training

  • Fly ball

  • Agility

  • Heel work
