Customer Question
I have 3 dogs...

I have 3 dogs. The mother, the father and one of their offspring. The mother is 7, the father is 6 and the baby will be 5 in September. Two weeks ago, out of the blue, the baby attacked the father and hurt him pretty good. They have never fought before. They are all spayed and neutered. They avoided each other for a couple days and then they got in a bad fight and both of them got cut up pretty bad. I have to keep them separated now. I don’t know what to do. They have been together for almost 5 years and there has never been a problem. Now they hate each other.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the Dog. What is the Dog's name?

There is no lethargy. Their names are ***** ***** Blue.

Ok. Thank you.
Dog Trainer: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 3 months ago

Good evening, JACustomer. I am very sorry to hear that you've had a spat between Fraser and Blue. The absolute best thing that you can do is hire a behaviorist to evaluate them in your home. It's imperative in these types of situations that the body language between both dogs be observed. The behaviorist will be able to help you not only overcome the behavior you're seeing but also to be able to predict when a fight might occur. There are tell-tale signs that we often miss before a fight breaks out. If you'd like my help searching for a behaviorist in your area, can you share your city and state?

I have found a few options in your area, though it is not specified now far of a distance they will travel. In some cases, they will want you to bring both dogs for an evaluation, though it's been my experience that in-home evaluations are often more useful. I am also including a link to a veterinary behavioral center to rule out medical issues which can contribute to behavioral changes including tick borne disease, brain lesions and thyroid disorders.

2) https://vermontdogtrainer.com
3) http://www.dogsrockvermont.com
4) The following link goes to a website where you can locate a certified veterinary behaviorist. I was unable to find any in VT, but thought you might be willing to travel and able to consider surrounding states: http://www.dacvb.org/about/member-directory/

Please be sure to rate before signing off today so that the website compensates me for helping you. We will still be able to chat back and forth after you rate.

What Customers are Saying:

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA

I couldn't be more satisfied! This is the site I will always come to when I need a second opinion.

JustinKernersville, NC

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.

EstherWoodstock, NY

Thank you so much for taking your time and knowledge to support my concerns. Not only did you answer my questions, you even took it a step further with replying with more pertinent information I needed to know.
