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.

I love to go for long walks.  My uncle takes me for long walks through the park and I lay down in the creek to cool off.   I like to sleep on the bed with my mommy but she doesn't let me too much because of my fur.  I have a cat named Misty who likes to lay beside me and lick my fur but when I try to sniff her she gets upset.  My relatives come to play sometimes:  Dakota, Razor, Sammi, Bailey, Piper, King and Ace.
