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.

My name is Peaches but they always call me Peachy. I love to play outside and run around the backyard. I also love playing with the children, but I'm very protective of them, if I think someone is hurting them they have to deal with me! I can be fierce if I need to be :) I hate having a bath it drives me crazy, I get water in my ears and just can't get it out, I try rubbing it on the carpet but that makes it worse. I always have to sleep in bed with my owners, and I try to get in between them but they usually make me move! I love going on the boat and swimming in the lake, it's SO much fun!


 


I passed away October 24/04 and will be missed.


Gone but not forgotten. Taken too soon!


We love you baby!
