Abscessed teeth are very painful, but dogs may not show obvious signs of pain. Instead, your dog may be reluctant to chew on his toys or may pull away when his head is touched. An observant owner may notice that their dog is only eating or chewing on one side of the mouth or is dropping food when eating.

After all, Dogs are excellent at reading human body language and behavior, and there is even some evidence that dogs can detect when a person has cancer or is about to have an epileptic fit.

Change in odorβ€”When a woman becomes pregnant, her body chemistry changes.

This, in turn, can cause her distinct odor (an odor her dog knows intimately) to change.

So it seems only natural that dogs will sense the mood and behavior changes that the woman of the house undergoes when she is pregnant.
