Xia is breathing heavily – why do cats breathe so hard?

       Cats breathe heavily and have murmurs. This may be caused by the obesity of cats or the infection of cats’ upper respiratory tract.

       Sometimes, when the cat is sleeping, the sound of breathing becomes loud, just like snoring. Of course, there are many reasons why cats snore. For example, in hot summer, the environment is relatively hot, at this time the cat’s breathing will become rapid, and the sound will become loud. Of course, this is normal. Just like people in a special environment, breathing will be more rapid, the sound is more loud.

       In addition, there are some reasons for the sound of cat breathing, such as lung infection caused by virus, cold and so on. When a cat’s lung is infected and has problems, its breathing will change, its breathing will be unstable, and its voice will become louder. These are all diseases.

       In addition, if you find a pet cat with a lung infection like illness, be sure to send it to the hospital in time, and ask the veterinarian to treat it.

       Observe whether the cat has a runny nose or sneezing. In some cases, it is because of a cold. At this time, the owner should take warm measures for the cat, feed the pet with cold medicine, and supplement nutrition. In this way, it will return to normal breathing state.

       The indoor environment should also be cleaned in time, otherwise the cat when sick with bacteria invasion will only make the body worse.

       There are usually several conditions that can cause respiratory distress. First, when the cat is obese, it will cause slight compression to the throat trachea, thus affecting breathing. It’s also important to control the cat’s size. Second, some cats with short noses have shorter noses than others, and are prone to breathing problems, such as Garfield. Third, upper respiratory tract infection, generally in the cold, cardiopulmonary disease will appear respiratory murmur. If accompanied by other symptoms, seek medical advice immediately.

The laryngeal cavity of cat is divided into three parts, the upper part is the vestibule of larynx, and the tail edge is the false vocal cord. The cavity between the false and true vocal cords is the second part of the laryngeal cavity. The third part is the cavity between vocal cord and cartilage ring, which is very narrow.

       3. When a cat is intimate with a human being, the false voice band vibrates and makes a sound through the resonance of the larynx, so we hear a sound similar to snoring.

       If it’s the kind of “ha ha ha” panting like a dog in summer, the cat is too hot. The cat only has sweat glands under the palm, so it is also afraid of heat. Under normal circumstances, the cat’s body temperature is higher than that of people, so it is slightly resistant to two to three degrees of heat, especially after the cat’s crazy running or strenuous exercise, if it feels hot, it will gasp heavily Heat stroke.

       Cat heatstroke performance:

       1. Shortness of breath, serious will be like a dog like tongue out of breath.

       2. If the cat can’t reduce the body temperature quickly, it may cause serious brain damage or even death.

       3. Heart rate is accelerated, nose is red but dry and hot, conjunctiva and oral mucosa are flushed.

       4. Severe dehydration symptoms, mouth foaming, mucous membrane purple.

       5. When the cat appears convulsion, coma symptoms will be life-threatening.

       terms of settlement:

       1. If you find a cat heatstroke, you should first reduce the temperature of the cat’s space. If the cat heatstroke indoors, ventilate the room immediately or turn on the air conditioner; if the cat heatstroke outdoors, quickly transfer the cat to a shady place.

       2. If your cat’s temperature rises and you feel hot with your hands, it’s better to immerse the cat in cold water or wipe the cat’s body with a cold wet towel, and put the wet towel on the cat’s head to cool down, so as to relieve the symptoms of congestion in the cat’s head. When the cat’s temperature drops to about 39-40 degrees, the cat can be taken out of the cold water for heat preservation or to maintain the temperature. Otherwise, the temperature will be lost due to the rapid cooling. Cooling work is very important, if the cat’s temperature can not be lowered in time, there will be brain edema, heart failure, renal failure and other symptoms, resulting in cat death. In addition, the temperature of cats should be monitored at any time to reduce the temperature of cats.
