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.

Timmy the kitten was born to a stray cat in a bad neighborhood. He found his way to a local shelter. I fostered him from the time he was a few days old until he passed away. Timmy had been born with a horrible heart defect called a Persistent Right Aortic Arch. He underwent surgery that successfully repaired it. Sadly, Timmy had many other problems that appeared weeks after the surgery. After a tough battle with many internal problems such as liver failure, bone marrow failure and ascites he passed away quietly at home November 6th 2009 at 4:30 AM. He will be missed by many.
