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.

MiMi was psychotic. He bit everything that came near him, including his own paws.  He liked to climb to the roof of him cage, then fling himself off of it. As the runt of the litter, I believe MiMi had some issues.  He only lived 2 months, and after that long MiMi committed suicide.  He stopped eating and drinking.  One day I woke up and tried to give him a treat.. but he had died in the night.

I'll never forget that crazy little guy.

Rest in peace.
