Pet Tip

Pain aggression in dogs – Pet tip 257

Unfortunately the following two scenarios occur from time to time: You’re innocently petting your cat or dog when all of a sudden your pet bites you. The same reaction can happen when you pick up your cat or dog the way you always do, when all of a sudden it bites you. What is going on here? Your pet NEVER bites you, and now that you are trying to show it some love, it bites you. Has your pet gone mad? What might be going on here is pain induced aggression.

It seems so obvious after you bring your pet to a veterinarian to figure out what is going on, but it may be as simple as pain induced aggression. Pain induced aggression means that your pet has exhibited an aggressive behaviour because it is in pain. This is especially common in older pets that may be suffering from arthritis or perhaps one of their internal organs is bruised or diseased.

Samantha, Sam for short, was an amazing dog, who died at the age of fourteen. Sam loved to play a type of tag game, which was really cool. Once, at a barbeque, she ate my hotdog!

Everybody loved Sam. I had a picture of her on my desk at school. SHe was like an older sister to me, since I'm just two years younger than her.

I almost cryed my heart out when I found out she had been put down. My dad got home, and me and him were the only ones home. I rushed to where he was and asked, "Where is she?" The first thing he said was, "She's gone." It was the first time I had ever seen my dad cry. I've cryed everyday ever since. It happened so quickly. One day she was fine, the next day she was suddenly paralyzed in the legs. The next.... gone. But my dad says she's in a better place now. That makes me happy.
