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.

Hi, this is our dog Syd. He is a rescue dog who came to live with us when he was 3 years old. He lives with 4 cats, but has only one that returns his affections and he can call his own (Snickerdoodles). He enjoys bobbing for grapes in his wading pool on hot summer days and lounging in snowbanks during the winter. He dislikes bananas and going downstairs to the basement with less than 2 people for protection. He considers himself to be an active dog as long as these activities do not interfere with the 14 - 18 hours of sleep he likes to get every day.
