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.

A simple goodbye to a longtime companion and a big part of our family. It is never easy to lose a loved one, and a pet is no different. My condolences to all of you who know what I am feeling right now. Faithful friend for 15 years and almost half my life. He howled at sirens in the middle of the night, knocked over beer cans, even left a very rare present on the floor which I never wanted to find between my toes.

It was a hard decision to take that drive to the vet with the thoughts of euthanasia, but even though he thought he was still a puppy, the fact was that he was not.

Hoping that you are in a better place my friend.
