Do you mean he humps pillow? If so just let him be. He is burning off steam and he enjoys it. Let you boy have his very own 'humpy' lol... it is normal & your vet is a jerk. :P

I agree too! Let him hump off his steam! As for your vet, I'm not passing judgement, because I don't know your vet. I just think sometimes vets are out there for a "quick buck" which sometimes doesn't solve the problem at all. :(

If you don't want him humping your pillows or blankets, give him his own. Max used to do this with blankets and towels if he got to riled up. He now has his own "blankie" and will get it and bring it upstairs to his bed on command. :) :lol:

You don't have to do that, it's just what i did because he doesn't really have access to pillows because he's not allowed on furniture. He would hump his towel when he was going to have a bath and it got annoying. We got him a little 2ft by 2ft fleece blanket. He doesn't hump it very often, but we don't mind if he does.
