Pet owners witness their dogs and cats doing all sorts of crazy things, from scooting along a carpet to making weird sounds, but one odd behavior is actually a sign that something could be very wrong. If a dog or cat ever pushes its head against a flat wall or some other big object, it's a symptom of a larger issue.
According toPetMD, the head pressing is usually a telltale characteristic of a neurological condition. It's also something animals do when they are in pain. PetMD says that possible causes can be stroke, brain tumor, infection, lead poisoning, head trauma, meningitis, encephalitis or some other disorder.
If you see it happening, take your pet to a vet immediately, but go even faster if you also notice your dog or cat walking in circles or pacing, staring blankly at the wall, seizing, having trouble seeing, or if they are pushing their face into the ground.
