Symptoms of Pulled Muscles in Dogs?

Answer

Symptoms of a pulled muscle in a dog is very similar to symptoms in a human. However, since dogs cannot speak, they may nip or whine to show they are in pain. They often will have a significant limp and some will lick the spot of the injury. Just like humans, dogs can benefit from cold or heat therapy and massages to heal the injury. You will want to take care, however, because they may snap at you out of pain. It may be beneficial to call your veterinarian for a pain killer until the injury begins to heal.
