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.

       My cat Squirt was the best cat there ever was,next to my other cat Toupers. She was very affectionate, and very overweight, but that didn't matter. She was not able to have kittens, though we had her for so long that it seemed like she was always with us. She is buried in our backyard and will carry on in our hearts forever. When we die, we always counted on seeing her in heaven....we'll miss you Squirt :-)!
