They all have their little oddities about them that most of the time we write off as just funny orabsurd. 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.
Head pressing is common among animals trying to seek relief.
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.
