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.

Yeah, I know - Amy got her picture on Pets.Ca before I did. The way she struts around here you would think she was the 'brindle princess.' If my human dad hadn't been so lazy and got my photo in on time, I'm sure I would have been the dog of the month and not her. Just kidding, Amy is a greyt step sister and I wouldn't trade her for the world. She shares all her squeeky toys and chew sticks with me. I am so glad she made my human parents rescue me from the track. I don't want her to know just yet, but I am really proud that she made the dog of the month at Pet.CA.
