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 am almost 8 years of age and recently diagnoised with Hypothyroidism.  It took a while for my owner to realize it was a medical problem, but I'm on the way to being a better dog.  I love to sleep a lot; why wouldn't you when you have your own bed.  My owners think the world of me and give me kisses whenever they pass by.  I love to take walks on the rocky shores of Newfoundland. My owner takes me out for walks so I can enjoy the breeze off the ocean.  I am a happy girl and love my life...thanks to my owners.
