Did you know that until the 1980s, veterinary medical researchers didn’t believe that animals feel pain? Veterinarians trained in the U.S. before 1989 were taught to ignore animal pain, which is probably why we still encounter Tripawds who are sent home without pain medication after amputation surgery.
In this informative Animal Talk Naturally podcast, veterinary naturopaths Dr. Kim and Dr. Jeannie discuss pain in animals. You’ll learn why animals try to hide their pain, and how in many cases pain can be a good thing.
