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.

duke surprises us everyday since we got him. we would expect a very dependent pup since he is only 5 weeks old. but duke is the complete opposite. infact he really let's you know what he wants. housetraining for example. we want him to get used to the newspaper....but he wants out. so its out he gets even in the middle of the night. he loves to snuggle up between us every night and wake his dad up to go peepee....good boy he never wakes up mom...lol...he is a bad licker....he licks my face til i cant breathe...i let him play with my friend's dog angel, they seem to get along very well. Angel is a lab mix and very motherly...she watches duke especially when they're alone together. i haven't tested him with cats yet so i can't sa for now. his fave toy is that BIG claw my friend gave me (houseslippers) he likes playing with that rather than all the toys i got for him. we loves to nap on the couch on daddy's pillow. he's a little stubborn but he's a very smart baby. he hates the housetraining spray.....i don't blame him....smells awful...lol
