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 beloved Goldie.  She was such a strong girl.  She never ever complained.  She survived breast cancer and a stroke.  She always protected my kids and now their kids.  She always let me know how much she loved us.  She was such a gentle friend.  I promised I would never let her suffer, and let her go.  She was not well for awhile now.  I think she felt she needed to be there for me, through my breast cancer now.  I miss her so very much and will never ever let her go out of my heart.  Your sisters Lyric and Ruby miss you so much also.  I will see you again someday my friend.  I love you.
