7. Exposure to toxins
Another reason why your dog or cat may be resting its head on some surface is because it’s intoxicated. There can be multiple reasons for this problem, such as the intake of human food, or medicine, or by chemicals such as bait for rodents, plants, or garden products.
Bonus: how to help your pet
If you notice a strange change in your pet’s behavior, the first thing you should do is visit a vet. Subsequently, the process of diagnosing the cause of why your little 4-legged friend is behaving like that will begin — that is, if it’s from intoxication, a tumor, metabolic problems, etc.
Together, you and your vet will be able to decide how to help your pet through the corresponding treatment. The recovery will depend on the cause, but the most important thing is to follow the medical instructions and let your dog or cat rest and eat.
