Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.

Many dogs who are in pain will vocalize while others still will stop eating, make quite a few slow, blinking gestures, avoiding food and water, etc. If you find that his demeanor changes, it will be time to start the medication. Most owners do not question when this happens because there's such an obvious change with their pet.

Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had? If questions remain, please reply and let me know how I can assist.
