So just about 10-15 mins ago I was getting Jack (my foster dog's) meds ready.He has kennel cough.Anyway I have given him his meds with no issues as of now.
Anyway I went to give him his meds tonight and he put up a fight.He never liked his meds,so I always hold his collar to restrain him...otherwise the meds just go everywhere.I never had issues with this either.However tonight when I restrained him,he put up a huge fight.Once he calmed down a minute,I went to put the meds in and he started growling.I then proceeded to give him the meds again after a minute and he took a snap at me!
He never actually got me...but the fact that he did TRY is what bothers me.He's been here about a week now,getting meds a couple times a day and never once did this!
Not impressed AT ALL.I still managed to give him most of his meds,but afterwards I had to crate him,as I am so annoyed.Yes,I know...don't use the crate as punishment.But I needed to put him somewhere.
Anyway I let the rescue know this.He is going to meet an adoptive family tommorrow and they have to be aware of this.
I am a little shaken up,because NONE of my foster dogs ever reacted like that with me...EVER! Even during medication time or anything.Jack is still not fixed,so this may have something to do with it as well.
Also I have a 4 yr old daughter,what if he does it with her? Jack is a sweet dog for the most part.But once again,the fact that he tried biting me while being medicated really bothers me.
