A symptom of some physical hurt or disorder in pets; pain is a general symptom that can occur in both cats and dogs and for a vast array of reasons. It can involve one part of the body or several and can be chronic or intermittent. Some common reasons dogs and cats may experience pain include bone fractures, bite wounds, damaged ear drums and other types of trauma or injuries. Kidney and heart disease, various infections, and stomach upsets can cause pain in pets as well.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
