They all have their little oddities about them that most of the time we write off as just funny or absurd. But there is a common oddity which many animals do that is actually a sign of a larger problem.
It’s called “head pressing” and it is where an animal goes up to a wall and presses their head against it because they are trying to alleviate a pain they can’t see to reach.
While this may look cute or odd, it’s really a serious problem.
Cancer, diseases, and certain poisons may cause an animal to engage in head pressing.
Immediate medical attention is necessary. Act fast to ensure the health and safety of your pet when you see it doing a head press.
