Our 2 yrs & 2 month old chocolate growls when we touch around the back of his hips just above his pee pee. Has anybody else had this problem? Could this be a kidney problem? We made an appointment with the Vet but they can't see us not until Friday, is this something that needs immediate attention? Please advice. Thank you!
Is this something that just started recently?
vet is a good first step, and you can also start counterconditioning him to enjoy touch - get his favourite treat bar none, and gently touch him with one hand and give him the treat with the other. Make sure you can gently touch anywhere on his body, not just the 'problem' area
I would like to know this as well.Originally Posted by rottnlabs
