      Snarling 

    • B.

      Yelping 

    • C.

      Yawning 

    Correct Answer
    D. Yawning 
    Explanation
    Yawning is not considered a form of vocalization. While snarling, yelping, and growling are all vocal expressions of pain, yawning is a reflexive action that typically indicates tiredness or boredom rather than pain. Yawning involves opening one's mouth wide and taking a deep breath, which helps to increase oxygen intake and regulate body temperature. Therefore, in the context of pain, yawning is not a sign typically associated with vocalization.

Licking also stimulates blood flow to the area, which can reduce inflammation and pain. Additionally, the action of licking releases endorphins, which can provide a calming effect for the dog.

      Sleeping 

    Correct Answer
    D. Sleeping 
    Explanation
    When a dog is in pain, it is more likely to occur that the dog will sleep more. Pain can cause discomfort and fatigue in dogs, leading to increased sleep as a way to cope with the pain. Licking, playing, and eating may be reduced or avoided altogether when a dog is in pain, as these activities can exacerbate the discomfort. Therefore, sleeping is a common behavior that dogs exhibit when they are in pain.

    A. Become aggressive 
    Explanation
    When a dog is worried that it will be hurt, it may become aggressive as a way to protect itself. Aggression is a common response in animals when they feel threatened or afraid. It is a natural instinct for dogs to defend themselves when they perceive danger, and becoming aggressive is their way of trying to ward off potential harm.

    Correct Answer
    A. Canine 
    Explanation

    What happens to the eyes of a dog in pain?

    • A.

      Pupils become bigger 

    • B.

      Pupils become sore 

    • C.

      Eyes become brighter 

    • D.

      Eyes become darker 

    Correct Answer
    A. Pupils become bigger 
    Explanation
    When a dog is in pain, their pupils become bigger. This is a physiological response known as mydriasis, which occurs due to the activation of the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic nervous system is responsible for the "fight or flight" response, and when a dog is in pain, it triggers this response, causing their pupils to dilate. This allows more light to enter the eyes, enhancing their ability to detect potential threats or dangers in the environment.

      Restlessness

      Difficulty resting

    • D.

      Altered breathing 

    Correct Answer
    D. Altered breathing 
    Explanation
    Altered breathing is a sign of pain associated with respiration. When an individual is in pain, their breathing pattern may change. They may experience shallow or rapid breathing, or even hold their breath momentarily. This alteration in breathing is a physiological response to pain and can be an indication that the individual is in distress. Restlessness, withdrawal, and difficulty resting are also signs of pain, but they are not specifically associated with respiration.

      Excessive vocalizations

      Altered breathing 

    • D.

      Excessive breathing 

    Correct Answer
    D. Excessive breathing 
    Explanation
    Excessive breathing is not a sign of pain in dogs. While dogs may exhibit altered breathing as a sign of pain, excessive breathing is not typically associated with pain. Instead, excessive breathing may indicate other issues such as heat stroke, respiratory problems, or anxiety. Therefore, in the context of pain, excessive breathing is not a reliable indicator.

When an animal or human is scared or threatened, their ears may flatten against their head, indicating fear or submission. This is a nonverbal communication signal that is specific to facial expressions.
