Inflammation in animals is the reaction of a part of the body in response to an injury or an illness such as a bacterial infection. The classical signs of inflammation are pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function. In small animals, inflammatory conditions include arthritis, as well as muscle, tendon and ligament injuries. Inflammation or pain in large animals is due to a variety of health conditions and impact the animals’ welfare as well as their production capabilities.
Inflammation is generally not cause for major concern and often occurs in warmer weather or as a result of superficial wound – small cuts and scrapes. If swelling occurs throughout the animal body, this may be a sign of a long-term, progressive disease, malnutrition, pregnancy or as a result of surgical procedures. In addition, pain may also have a significant impact on the animal’s welfare.
