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 rescued by my mom & dad 2 yrs ago. They are my FOURTH home & I was only 2!! I was living with a family with LITTLE kids & a BIG dog..the kids were REALLY mean to me. My other home I was left ALL alone in a mechanic type shop...covered in oil..ALL alone..I cried & no one heard me..( i have abandonment issues now) My original owner let me get lost...I got out of my yard too many times because I was ignored...so I was surrendered to the SPCA. Thats how my whole life started & I was only TWO!My new mommy & daddy loved me sooo much @ first sight...they took me home RIGHT then & there! (it helps looking like an "Ewok") They also investigated my WHOLE life & found out everything!!-thanks to my microchip- (I can be REALLY grouchie @ times)...but they love me unconditionally!!! I now have issues--mom calls it "little man syndrome"-i have ingrown eyelashes thats too late for surgery..so I have 1 good eye...hard to see sometimes....I also DONT like little kids!! Big dogs intimidate me..but I stand my ground with my newly adopted big brother, Zeus(also a rescue dog) I have my own comfy bed now..walks daily..car rides..& most of all...LOVE!! ( & cuddles) More people need to save my fellow friends!
