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!  I'm Pokey!  Thanks for stopping to find out a little about me.  Right now, I'm almost 6 years old. 
My favourite thing  to do is eat!  I eat 2 meals every day and LOVE to get treats and cookies.  I can hear the cookie box being opened froma mile away.  I don't really have any favourite cookies ..... I just don't like buffalo liver treats.  I also love bananas, apples and carotts.
There are very few things I don't like.  Mostly getting woken up at 4:00 am when my Mom has to go to work ..and celery ..I don't know how humans can eat that stuff! YUCK!
Anyhoos... I have to get back to my nap, thanks for dropping by!
