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.

Ruffee was a new experience for me. I got him expecting that everyone in the family would treat him as our dog, but as time went by, I noticed that it wouldn't happen. He was a loud little thing. He didn't like being handled, and flew away or would bite you when you tried to. I used gloves with him. So, after months went by, today, Thursday, September 18, 2003 3:25 PM EST, he died. I felt really bad. So, I lit a candle, sprinkled some salt on the spot he died on, and he will always remain in my heart.
