Still working on a conference presentation, been reading through papers, and one thing that comes up is the Wong-Baker Faces Scale.

faces scale

This is used (for example) with small children who cannot easily articulate their pain verbally. I've found a more elaborate human version which I may use for my presentation (below cut) but I've also stumbled across a couple of charts which dog and cat owners may find useful. Most children will let you know if they hurt, but with a dog or cat it might not be so obvious. So I'm putting them up here in case they might be of use.

Our Millie (dog) is usually pretty good communicating that she wants to go outside or she wants feeding, but in the evening she can be moaning and humphing for no obvious reason. The chart above will still be useful.
