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 was born in Canada, but now live in Connecticut. My ancestors are almost all Canadian Champions. I travel back and forth to Nova Scotia frequently, where I vist my "cousins" Tiger and Toby, and my Grandmother, Tia. We all have a great time, although "Granny" would prefer that we young ones not play so rough, she hides under the bed! I really adore Tiger, we are inseperable when we visit, either in Nova Scotia or in CT. l used to be a finicky eater, but now I will eat anything, my absolute favourite thing to eat is carrots. I love to sleep with Mom, but am only allowed to after I spend most of the night  in my own bed, in her closet...I feel so secure there. I'm the younger of the dogs at home, I wish my older "sister" Lindsey would play with me, but she would prefer to just lie around watching me make a fool of myself.
