A dog’s life looks cool and funny from the outside. In reality, can dogs get headaches? Let’s learn what experts have to say about canine headaches.

Sounds a bit exciting isn’t it? An expert from the Illinois State University agrees dogs do get headaches. Dogs suffering from head pain would display a change inactivity.

They could suffer from light-sensitivity and wouldn’t prefer to go out. Treats would be left untouched and you could see them holding their head against the furniture.

You could also catch them rubbing their eyes. Dogs can suffer from pain due to head injuries, allergies, eye dysfunctions, and toothaches. They would find it hard to communicate and if the scenario looks pathetic, take him to an ER.

Develop cordial relations and stay in good terms with your vet for a happy dog. A neurology expert pinpoints the fact that the percentage of brain tumors in dogs are more or less equal to the cases seen in humans.

Anti-inflammatory drugs reduce the “head pressing.” What about hangovers?  Hangovers are extremely rare in dogs.  As far as random headaches are concerned, experts have no answer.

Some vets believe that canines experience headaches similar to what humans undergo. Other vets also, claim that canines may undergo head pain due to medical treatments.

Canines with brain tumors are seen cranking their head against objects and wall as if they are in pain. Dogs with encephalitis are susceptible to headaches just like humans.

Painkillers have not helped much in some cases but medications for neuropathic pain has shown positive results. If your dog seems unhappy and expresses pain in the head, talk to your vet.
