Q. My 10 yr old lab has been attacking my other animals when they get near her she does have a torn ACL and breast cancer all she does is lay around to

A. This aggressive behavior is likely related to pain and feeling vulnerable and is an attempt to protect herself from further injury or conflict to her status in the social pack. I recommend you reassess her pain relief and comfort levels, she may need her medication altering or increasing to relieve her pain levels; keep her isolated from the other animals which are causing her distress also to prevent conflict and injuries.
