Dear Dr. Florez, I have two dogs, a big one and a very little one. Both mixed breeds, both neutered females well over 5 years old, both healthy and good-natured most of the time, but the big dog has suddenly taken to attacking the little one. It has become a very stressful situation, as we now need to keep them separated at all times.

Actually, we've noticed that the big dog seems to have become very aggressive to all other dogs; even ones that are being walked on leashes past the house (we live near a park, so this situation occurs frequently). Could this behavior be hormonal? Age related? Health related? We are very puzzled and are not sure what the trigger may have been to this behavior or what steps to take to begin correcting the problem. Any ideas or advice would be appreciated. Thanks,
