HI Everyone, I wonder if anyone can please give me some advice on the following problem..... On Saturday Casper went to the vets for his annual check up/boosters. While the vet was examining him he hissed a couple of times (pre the jabs). The vet commented that his stomach felt tense (casper's not the vet ) & when I asked if that was a problem he said he couldn't feel anything & Casper wasn't constipated so probably just tense because of being handled. So that was that, he had his jabs came home and went straight out to play... A few days later I went to pick Casper up and he made a deep exhaling sound (something between a growl and a hiss) so I immediately let him go. I tried again this morning & got the same reaction. I don't pick him up often but when I do he's never reacted badly. I've only heard him hiss once in the year I've had him & that was at a dog. I presume that he's just associating being picked up with the vets seen as he got a clean bill of health but how do I get him over that? Was I right to let go of him straight away or should I have lifted him up and given him some fuss so he knows everything is ok?
