Aggressive Behavior

Have you experienced a grumpy snarl when a toddler touches her tail or a show of teeth when strangers visit, or perhaps a flash of claws at passing hands? Living with a truly aggressive animal is like living with a loaded gun. In some cases aggressive behavior is caused by a painful physical problem–arthritis, for example– that makes a pet cranky. More often, it’s a result of behavioral problems that often can be difficult to treat. If your pet is posing a serious threat, trying to handle it alone can be risky, so play it safe and call your veterinarian or an animal trainer for advice.
