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.

Snowball was a very gentle puppy.  He loved to eat his cookies and greenies.  He lived with his adopted brother, Storm.  They loved each other very much.  Storm and Snowball always played, ate and slept together.  Snowball loved to sleep in their house wrapped in a blanket.  He was afraid of loud noises and high places.  When he was naughty, his punishment was being on top of the washing machine.  Snowball was a smart dog and it was like he understood things that you would communicate to him.  HIs favorite color was pink.  We always joked about him being a little feminine.  We miss him terribly.
