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.

I joined Pepper, Tigger and Alison in October 2009. They found me with SNAP and not much history. I'm a very friendly boy, love all people and animals and expect them all to love me too. If there's a lap around it's mine, even if someone else gets there first. Next to laps, my favorite thing is to be outside and to leap through the air and run as fast as I can. I always come back though. Alison says I'm pretty smart, but I don't look before I run and I find ways to get out of the yard so she has to keep an eye on me all the time.
