Animals hide illness in nature as a defense mechanism. This is an inherent survival trait that they do not fully lose once they are domesticated. This protective attribute might even be heightened if there are multiple pets in the home, or an animal lives outdoors. It also is more pronounced in unneutered males that are very protective of their territories.

This means that a pet owner may not be aware that a dog or cat is experiencing pain. Visible symptoms may be so subtle that they almost appear normal.
