When the pet is intolerant of touch, it's because it has an over-sensitivity to touch. This symptom can involve one or more areas of the body and is typically a behavior-related condition that can occur in both cats and dogs. However, there are some medical issues in pets that can result in touch sensitivity as well. Some of the most common things that can cause over-sensitivity to touch in dogs and cats include abuse/neglect, distrust of humans, trauma, skin infections, skin cancer and sun burns.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
