At the moment of new life, both the mother and the owner should be very happy. However, it is the weakest time for the baby just after delivery, and so is the kitten. At this time, it needs the careful care of the owner. For the novice owner, it is easy to cause confusion. So, the following is a brief description of how to take care of the mother and the kitten. Just after the birth of chinchilla and kittens will be particularly vulnerable, need special patient care of the owner. First of all, after the birth of the baby dragonfly, the owner should prepare a comfortable and warm living environment for it and hemp. Then timely observe whether the kitten’s fur is completely dry, if it has been dry, it means that the kitten is very healthy. If the fur hasn’t dried for a long time, and baby chinchilla is making noises, then the owner should keep warm and adjust the ambient temperature to a higher level. After childbirth, the owner must let the cat alone with the baby, because the longmao Baba will cause varying degrees of influence and damage to the whole process of breast-feeding, they will be expelled by the furious mother and scurry around in the rat cage, so it is easy to hurt the young kitten. For the comfort of the entire chinchilla family, we must raise them separately before the birth just like the male and female. In addition, the kitten will become naughty and lively after opening his eyes. They gnaw at the cage and even get out of the cage. Therefore, ordinary rat cages can’t hold young kittens. The owner needs to prepare a more compact cage to prevent the kitten from escaping. Then all the toys and springboards in the cage are removed to prevent the kitten from being naughty and hurt. In the first few days of birth, the owner also needs to carry on the necessary supplementary feeding. Because, many chinchilla babies will have different degrees of weight loss in one or two days after birth, which is mainly due to the fact that it takes a process for the mother of chinchilla to milk, and then supplementary feeding is needed. Generally, under normal circumstances, artificial supplementary feeding should be carried out in 3-4 days. When the weight of the kitten stops falling, it means that it has eaten the mother’s milk, so it does not need to be assisted feeding at this time. However, if there are more than 2 chinchillas in one litter or the female is old and weak, the owner should make a decision to carry out artificial supplementary feeding to ensure the health of the baby and the numbness of the chinchilla.
It is necessary for the owner to be happy when the baby is born. The owner should not be flustered at the moment when the new baby arrives. It is not good for the owner to be in a hurry. After delivery, he should not only take care of the little kitten, but also take care of the mother. The following introduction is about the matters needing attention after the birth of chinchilla, which is certainly helpful for novice owners.
Then talk about lactation care. In addition to the above prenatal precautions mentioned in the removal of pedals and remove the bottom net, but also pay attention to: during the period of production of female cats because of reduced exercise, it is easy to have constipation, so the lactation period can adopt the method of food and grass mixed feeding.
What’s more, we should keep male and female chinchillas separately in time. Female chinchillas will ovulate again within 24 hours after birth. At this time, if the male Dragonfly rides, the female will be pregnant again. We call it blood matching, which is very harmful to the health of female kittens.
For inexperienced breeders, the easiest way to keep a kitten healthy after birth is to weigh the kitten every day. If the kitten does not gain weight or only grows 1 g to 3 G, it will be an accident that it has drunk the mother’s milk. If the kitten’s weight drops, it must be noticed by the owner. At this time, it indicates that the kitten does not drink milk and needs artificial feeding. However, if one or two of them are born in one litter, the female cats will take care of themselves. However, when they give birth to three or four cats, they will give up the weak kittens by virtue of the animal instinct and “ignore” them. At this time, they need artificial feeding.
The method of artificial feeding is to put the cat around the mother in turn, and put the kitten alone in other cages at other times, so as to ensure that each cat can get milk; the time is two hours in turn. You can also put some full fat sweet milk powder in the bowl and let them feed themselves.
And kittens will be curious about “free movement” when they grow up. They will get out of the cage and explore outside. Even if you are using the standard cage as a nursery cage, don’t take it lightly. You should enclose the cage with metal mesh. When enclosing, you should pay attention to the gap between the metal mesh and the cage wall, and the kitten will fall into this gap. On the other hand, when you wrap your cage, you should use your hands to touch the inside of the cage several times to make sure it won’t hit them!
Finally, we need to pay attention to: the female cat should resume bathing 7 days after birth, because there are secretions discharged from the genitalia after childbirth. It is easy to pollute the body by bathing too early. Kitten sand bath to let its natural learning can, generally in 20-30 days and the female cat with the bath.
The kitten’s lactation period is about 2 months, so it’s better to keep the mother cat and the kitten together for two to three months. If you want to transfer the kitten, please start the transfer after three months. This will also ensure the kitten’s health and independence.
After the kitten leaves the female cat, do not rush to put the female cat next to the male cat. Let the female cat rest for a period of time, which can be a month. When they put it back, they would have some fights.
