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'm one happy go lucky guy. Born at Guide Dogs For the Blind, Inc. in San Rafael, California I had big plans, but they didn't work out. I was trained for 18 months to do Guide Work, but when I went up for formal training they found out I had arthritis and hip dyphasia. Well, I came home to play and have fun. I love children and hope to be a therapy dog someday. I'm not mature enough for that yet. Maybe in a couple of years.
I like stuffed toys, bones, balls; you name it. I think ice cream is a food group.
Most of all I love children and am quiet and well behaved around the littlest ones.
Life is good!
