Chloe is going to be 4 this year. all the sudden she has become food aggressive with our other dane Lexi who will also be 4 this year. this is not normal.... she had dog aggression after being attacked by a beagle at a dog park. that has always been there, but i can work her in with a new dog if i work her through it- takes about 2 hrs before i can let her off leash but it can be done. and dogs that she knew before the attack shes fine with.
anyway, shes gone after our other dog 3 times this month. they have NEVER gotten in a fight before this. i didnt know what was setting it off before- it was happening when i shut off the lights and get into bed i would hear them start on their way to the bedroom. im guessing they both found a piece of treat or something on the floor and that set it off. yesterday they were in the kitchen with their lab cousin whos a year old. they all sat for a treat. holly (the lab), then lexi, then chloe. chloe dropped hers when she was chewing it and lexi bent down to it and chloe let her have it. this is really out of the norm for her because she never did it in the past, never had any resourcing guarding issues, nothing. never been deprived of food that may cause that, nothing.
im going to have a full blood panel ran on her (my horse vet makes out the paperwork for me and i draw the blood and drop it off myself, this way its only like $25 for me instead of $75+). and if that shows nothing then ill take her into the vet and have him give her a run over and see what he can find. or if the blood does show something i will have to take her in.... arg.... anyone else have any other ideas?
