It looks cute...

 

…but it can be a sign of bad things. What am I talking about? Ever see your dog go over to the wall and rest its head against the wall. We see it as totally weird and odd behavior, and we may even laugh about it. But I’m here to tell you that something else may be going on with your dog that you are going to want to have a trained vet look at.

Vets have known for a while that if a dog regularly places it’s head against a wall, almost as if it is trying to hold up that wall, that it’s actually a sign of something possibly going on with the dog.

What could that sign be, you wonder? Well, I don’t want to alarm you, but it could be something a brain tumor or some other sort of mass. Why, then, the wall? The wall is used by the dog to help relieve some of the pressure it is feeling.

So if you see your dog doing this, please get it checked out as soon as possible.
