Thread: older desexed male suddenly humping everything??

    Default older desexed male suddenly humping everything??

    Our 8 plus year old desexed beagle has suddenly started humping things- and often. He used to do it maybe once a year, and suddenly in the last week its been 4 or 5 times a day. He is pulling cushions off the couch and humping them, pulling pillows off the beds and humping them, and attempting human legs...
    Its a sudden change- and really annoying. Any ideas?? We are stopping him as soon as we notice it. He has distroyed a couple of pillows this week though, and I would rather he loose this new habit.

    Take him to a vet..A sudden increase of hormones can be a sign of some diseases...Sometimes cancer, prostrate or testicular.

    There are also some not as nasty....but I would get a vet to check him out

    Im not sure, but id take a look outside the window, is there a red MG parked in your drive way? If there is, its hormones.

    But any sudden change in behaviour, get vet checked, and as newfsie says, hormonal spikes indicate illness often.

    rightio- thanks all for your words of wisdom. He seems so fine in every other way, coat looks great, happy walking, good eater, normal beagle (bloody shocking) behaviour! I am a tad reluctant to take him to the vet- the thought of blood tests for hormone levels etc, anyway- I am on to it...
