What’s the reaction of a sick kitten – what happens when a kitten is sick?

       What is the most ugly department in the world? I think many doctors will say that it is the most difficult to see a child. Because children don’t have the ability to act or even express themselves well, it’s difficult to describe exactly what’s wrong when they are uncomfortable. Therefore, it is not easy to be a pediatrician. After all, there is no such step as interrogation. We can only judge the condition by experience and examination results.

       As with treating children, it is very difficult to treat pets. Cats can’t talk. Most of the time, even if they don’t feel well, they just hide and lick their fur. Therefore, for families with domestic cats, in order to prevent the pet from getting sick and the owner does not know the occurrence of this situation, we should observe the cat more often.

       When cats have these symptoms, they may be sick. Don’t delay!

       First: observe the mental state of cats

       In fact, whether the cat is sick or not is very easy to observe. If the cat can eat, drink, jump, and be very active, then the cat must be OK. If the cat begins to wilt, sleepy and unresponsive to its owner’s call, then even if it is not seriously ill, it is likely that something is wrong with the cat. Therefore, owners can take time to observe the cat every day. If they find that the cat’s mental state is not good, they should carefully check and check to see where the cat is uncomfortable, so as to find out and treat the cat as soon as possible.

       Second: look at diet and feces

       Under normal circumstances, a cat’s daily food is relatively fixed. If you suddenly find that the cat’s appetite decreases or even refuses to eat, then the cat is definitely not comfortable. In addition, when shoveling excrement, you can also observe the cat’s feces. The feces of healthy cats are hard and hard. If you find soft stool or loose stool, the owner should pay attention to it.

       Third: check the hair / skin / teeth and other parts

       As a qualified excrement removal officer, it is necessary to check the cat’s body regularly. For example, you can often hold the cat to play, by the way, check whether the cat’s ears are clean, whether there are cat ringworm on the body, or open the mouth to see if there are ulcers and so on.

       Most cats are still very healthy, so as long as the owners care, it is not easy to get sick. However, as a excrement removal officer, observing the health status of his kittens is also responsible for his pet. If problems are found and solved as soon as possible, the kittens will be free from pain.

       £¨18£© Burn and rat bite

       The cause of the disease is that t family cats are particularly timid and cold in winter. They like to lie by the hearth and stove. Some of them even drill into the firewood stove after meals to keep warm, so they are easy to be burned and scalded. In addition, when the cat catches mice, it is also easy to be bitten by rats. Symptoms: General livestock burns can be divided into four categories, namely, first, second, third and fourth degree burns. Domestic cats are sensitive and usually have first degree burns (mild burns). The main feature is skin flushing or slight edema. The naked eye can see that the hair is burnt and the skin surface is slightly damaged, and there is pain. Sometimes a layer of epidermis is falls off without leaving scar. If it is bitten by a mouse, it can be seen that the injured part mostly occurs in the forelimb, and the blood and exudate often adhere to the fur around the injured part Even, the cat kept licking with its tongue to clear the blood. treatment. One of the following prescriptions can be selected: (1) after scalding, carefully remove the scorched hair of the injured part and the surrounding area, clean the injured surface with warm boiled water, dry it with sterilized gauze, and then coat it with 5-10% potassium permanganate solution for 2-3 times to promote the growth of the injured surface; (2) for the less serious cases, shikonin oil and Wanhua oil (patent medicine, medicine) can be applied (3) in case of suppuration, clean with 0.5% Furacilin Solution or 4% boric acid solution, wet compress or spread edible vinegar; (4) if the wound is bitten by a mouse, the bloodstained fur around the wound should be cut off as soon as possible, and the whole wound should be exposed. After cleaning with warm boiled water, 5% iodine wine should be smeared, several times a day. (5) in case of suppuration after rat bite, the skin should be cleaned with 5% iodine To remove the necrosis of the wound, apply purple potion (also known as gentian violet and blue potion) several times a day until the wound becomes crazy. In order to prevent wound infection and secondary systemic symptoms, in addition to taking the above measures, we can also consider feeding antibacterial and anti-inflammatory drugs.

       Cat in the process of disease, often appear a variety of abnormal phenomena, medical known as clinical symptoms. As long as the cat owners often observe the cat’s daily life habits and detect the abnormal situation as soon as possible, they can know whether the cat is sick in time. The abnormal performance of sick cats generally has the following aspects: mental state, sick cats often show listlessness, like to lie down, no mind or half closed eyes. The more serious the condition is, the weaker the reaction will be, and even coma and disappearance of various reflexes (such as pupil’s reflection to light) and so on. Some may also have a kind of opposite mental disorder, that is, the cat is excited and restless, turns around, bites things disorderly, barks, manic and so on. The cat with nutritional condition often has rough, dry, lack of luster, thin and energetic back hair. Healthy cats are usually smooth and lustrous with plump muscles. Temperature can be measured directly with a thermometer. In general, the nose of a cat can be observed. If the nose is dry, it is a sign of high body temperature. In addition, the skin temperature changes of the ear root and body surface can also be used as a reference for body temperature. The body temperature of healthy cats is 38.0-39.5 ¡æ. Once the cat’s temperature rises, it is often accompanied by thirst, listlessness, slow action, loss of appetite and other phenomena. Posture cat’s abnormal posture when standing, lying down, walking and jumping is also a kind of disease of cat. For example, the cat’s limbs are painful and often limp when walking, and the posture is not correct when standing. When the cat has abdominal pain, it often curls up with its head under the abdomen and lies in unnatural posture. The normal breathing rate of breathing cats is 20-30 times per minute. If the number of breaths is increased or decreased, and at the same time, dyspnea, nostril dilation, or even mouth breathing, abdominal fan movement, it indicates that you may have respiratory diseases or other systemic diseases. However, attention should be paid to distinguish between seasons, temperatures, and changes in cat’s normal physiological respiration caused by changes in activity. Generally speaking, the sick cats have different degrees of anorexia and refeeding. Of course, we should pay attention to the difference between the cat’s picky eating habits and the amount of water the cat drinks. If cats have fever or diarrhea, the amount of drinking water will often increase when they are dehydrated, but when they are seriously ill or seriously exhausted, the amount of drinking water will be reduced or even not. The eyes of a cat are bright. The changes of cat’s third eye face are also closely related to the disease. Under normal circumstances, the third eye face has an inner angle in the cat’s eyes, which can’t be seen at ordinary times. When the kitten is sick, the third eye face will protrude and cover up part of the eyeball, sometimes even half of the eyeball. The more prominent the third eye face, the more serious the condition is. In addition, when healthy, the cat’s eyes are very clean, very little secretion. If the disease, the eyes will appear purulent or serous secretions. When observing the cat’s eyes, it is also necessary to pay attention to whether the eyes and faces of both sides are symmetrical. For example, swelling in one case often indicates that there is local disease of the eye; if both sides are swollen at the same time, it is mostly caused by systemic diseases such as heart, * *, and severe malnutrition. The normal color of the mouth cat is light pink. When the cat has a fever, its mouth becomes flushed, when it is anemic, it is pale, when it is sick, it is brown when it is sick, and it is purple when it is seriously ill. In addition, we should also pay attention to the cat’s oral secretions, tongue surface, gingiva, buccal mucosa, throat, whether there are blisters, ulceration, swelling and other abnormalities. In cats with normal nose, the tip of the nose is cold and moist. If the cat’s nose is hot, dry, or even cracked, it is abnormal. In addition, cats rarely have a runny nose, which can be a sign of a disease. The ears of a cat move freely and are sensitive to sound. The opposite is true of sick cats. In addition, attention should be paid to whether there are secretions, hair loss and other abnormal phenomena in the cat’s ear. Vomit cats throw up easily when they say goodbye. Vomiting in cats can be divided into pathological and physiological vomiting. Physiological vomiting is a normal phenomenon, but if it is caused by gastrointestinal disease, fever. Those caused by cold, pneumonia, * * disease, food poisoning, foreign bodies in the stomach, parasites or gastric bleeding, expensive choice should not be taken lightly. Coughing and sneezing a cat sneezing is often a sign of catching a col
