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.

Hello,Gus here!  My owner, Theresa, is very nice to me.  I like to play hide-and-seek with her...in the snow of course.  I dislike fancy things, people always say "Shoe!" and push me off.  I guess they want me to chew up their shoes then...but when I try, they chase me away!  Strange things, people are...well, anyways.  My favorite toy is a tennis ball...to play fetch and to chew on.  I like to lounge in a little thingie like a cough (but I'm allowed on) in the den.  It's my favoreite place!  I haven't had an embarrassing moment yet, so I can't tell you anything!  My most cherished membory is being alone...and able to sit on the couch until somebody pushes me off (once again).  So, I hope you learned a bit about me, and me sure to come back-I update it at least once every 2 days.  Bye, and remember pups, DON'T GO O COUCHES UNLESS YOUR ALONE!  Or you could get into trouble....hehehe....
