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.

Sweetpea, our gerbil, sadly passed away on Friday 05 August 2005 after contracting a mystery illness. Her passing was swift, within hours of showing signs of being ill, she had passed away.

Although she was not an old gerbil, she had led a full life.

She joined our family after we took pity on her in the petshop. She was the last one left, and was chewing up the dividers between the cages in her boredom.

She was renowned for her abilities to escape from her cage, and had several escapades. She survived being caught by the cat twice  She once spent the night behind our fire after escaping and refused to come out.

Farewell Sweetpea, much loved, and now at peace once more.
