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 Kirby - my home is not the same without you. For 15 years, you make me laugh, made me feel good to come home, always by my side and always happy to see ME. I miss seeing your smiling little face, your demanding ways when you think you're the boss, and how you lined up my nieces and nephew when they were too loud and unruly. You're my little guy and I will always miss you. Love you mom
