Illness / Medication Related

derby illness and medication related dog training

Some behaviour can be linked to illness or the side effects relating to medication. Dogs are very good at masking chronic pain, it is seen as a sign of weakness in their own kind and a dog that is weak can potentially become a target for attack. A dog suffering painful joints can demonstrate a grumpy disposition and if pushed aggressive displacement behaviour. Pain can be controlled by veterinary prescribed medication and supplements can ease stiffness in joints. Bitches with hormonal issues can demonstrate unusual, non-normal behaviours. Certain diseases and conditions can include side effects such as – hyperactivity, aggression, hypersensitivity, lethargy. These behaviours tend to arrive suddenly and owners should know that what they are witnessing is out of the range of ‘normal’ behaviour.

Medication can induce various side effects – Always check the medication information for possible side effects or ask your vet if you suspect a sudden change in temperament or unusual behaviours are observed. It is very important to advise me in advance if your dog is on prescribed medication.
