Biting

Biting

Herbal remedies for cats and dogs to help stop behavior problems such as biting in puppies and kittens.

Animals routinely experience irregularities in bodily systems, including the Central and Autonomic Nervous systems, requiring a correction to restore emotional balance, to promote relaxation and reduce nervousness and to balance mood and provide feelings of comfort and security.

Many dogs and cats experience emotional distress for a variety of reasons, including environmental and situational stressors such as the introduction of a new or young animal (puppy or kitten), loss of a family member or family pet, separation from owners, visiting guests, transitional or traumatic events, abuse, an inappropriate diet (one which contains processed foods including corn, wheat, soy or other fillers) and general anxiety that includes irregular behaviors manifest as urine marking, excessive biting, barking and scratching.

Dogs and cats cannot speak or vocalize their discomfort like humans can. They growl (dogs) or hiss (cats) to let us know when they are not happy, guarding their territory or threatened. While most dogs growl as a warning before biting, some may be overtly aggressive and threatening – often biting indiscriminately.

Puppies tend to bite as a means of exploration as they are not used to their jaw strength. Cats too can be prone to aggressive behavior and biting. This can result in problems in the household not to mention potentially disastrous consequences outside the home, endangering other animals and humans.

Some causes of biting in pets include:

Provocation (the animal feels threatened and defends itself from perceived danger)

Pain (animals who have unseen injury may view an approaching person as the inflictor of the pain)

Abuse (a previously neglected animal may be more aggressive and prone to bite)

Illness – unprovoked biting (rabies and certain conditions may cause an animal to bite indiscriminately without cause)

Aggressive behavior (poor training in early years may lead to aggressive behavior)

Food removal (an animal may view an approaching individual as a threat to food source if they are not fed regularly or have a history of abuse.)

Hormonal levels - dogs that have not been spayed or neutered are three times more likely to bite.

Conventional Remedies:

Many conventional treatments are available for aggressive behavior and your vet may prescribe tranquilizer-type medication or nervous system relaxants. Keep in mind these are strong drugs and may be accompanied by side effects and may not be suitable for animals with a heart, liver or kidney conditions.

Dogs that have killed cats and show predatory tendencies should be kept away from toddlers and children. The dog’s predatory tendencies should to be addressed immediately with behaviorists and medication if necessary.

If you dog lacks a proven tract record of 100% acceptable non-aggressive behavior then keep the dog away from children who do not know the dog that well, instruct your children not to approach dogs that are feeding, or in possession of an object such a bone or toy, or when a dog is resting or sleeping.

Teach children to treat dogs in a humane and caring manner and to respect a dog or cat’s personal space. Animal abuse should never be tolerated.

When a puppy bites during play do not yell or whine, as this may cause the pup to think it is part of the game. Instead, say a firm “Ouch” or “No” and stop playing. When the puppy has settled, resume playing.
