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.

Sonny is such a goofball! He loves to act silly and make people laugh. He's also a big cuddlebug. This boy is so sweet, he is totally kid-safe and has never even growled at someone. He was abused before he came to us at 6mo of age, but is getting over his shyness nicely and has learned to trust. The breeder who sold him to us was going to use him for breeding, but had to move. Incredibly smart dog, we love him to death. Update: Sonny has allergies, and is now on Benedryl :o(
We had Sonny fixed in order to not contribute to the 16,000 homeless pets killed each DAY simply because of lack of homes. PLEASE SPAY OR NEUTER!
