Jennifer Aniston hates seeing her pet Norman in pain, and so leaves the room if he ever has to have an injection
Jennifer Aniston cries when her dog has injections.
The 40-year-old actress hates seeing pet pooch Norman in pain, and walks away if he ever has a shot.
A source told the National Enquirer magazine: "Whenever a vet technician arrives at her home to slip Norman an injection, Jennifer breaks down and flees the room until the deed is done."
Jennifer rushes back into the room as soon as Norman's treatment is over to comfort him.
Norman, a Corgi-Terrier mix, is growing old and suffers from a series of health complaints including arthritis.
To ease his pain, Jennifer splashes out $250 a week on massage, Reiki and acupuncture treatments.
A source explained: "Norman has been Jennifer's constant companion during all her emotional upheavals, but he suffers from aching joints and stiffness. Jennifer doesn't want to put him on medication just yet, so she has opted for doggy spa treatments from a licensed vet technician."
Jennifer - who has had a string of failed romances following her divorce from Brad Pitt - has previously spoken of her love for Norman.
She said: "It wouldn't be bad if, when a man comes home, he'd run to his woman with his tail wagging. This sort of excitement is something I've always missed in a man to be honest."
