There are many cat owners who don’t know what to do when cat gets sick. The worst part is some cat owners decide to ignore their pet and hope that the cat will get its health back soon. This is a big mistake because when getting sick, cat needs help. If this animal is ignored, of course, it is going to die sooner or later. Are you a cat owner? If you answer yes, what do you do if your own pet gets sick? Do you let it face bad condition alone? If you do, you are not a good cat owner. You are an animal torturer. If you don’t want to be an animal torturer, you should take care of your cat. How? Do the following tips:
Give cat milk
The first to do is giving cat milk. Buy milk for cat at supermarket, department store, or animal shop soon. Make sure that you buy high quality cat milk so your cat gets its health back soon. Cat milk functions to make cat have appetite so its body is not weak anymore. In contrast, if it wants to eat and then throw up, this means that there is something wrong with its food. Check date expired and food content in detail because who knows that cat does not like food content.
Cover cage with thick towel
If your cat’s body is cold, you have to cover its cage with thick towel to warm its body. Make sure that put the towel tidily so all body parts of your cat are covered optimally. What if its body is hot? Of course, covering cage with thick towel is a mistake because its body will be hotter. Thus, what should you do? You should put your pet in cold room and let it sleep on tile flooring. This is important to do because tile flooring can be a mediator to decrease hot temperature. Keep in mind to make it comfortable by massaging its body smoothly.
Put cage near lamp
Some cat owners decide to put cage in any places when cat gets sick. This happens because they don’t know that the cat needs light to make its body warm. For this, putting cage near lamp (minimal 15 watt) is a must to keep body’s temperature of cat. Remember to arrange distance cage and lamp as well as possible so cat feels comfortable.
If you already do the tips above but your cat’s condition is still not good yet, you are highly recommended to bring your pet to veterinarian as soon as possible. Make sure that you choose professional and experienced veterinarian so cat gets best treatments. Besides, you should ask about problem causes so you know what to do if your cat deals with the problem anymore. Also ask for cat food recommendation from veterinarian to minimize the risks of choosing wrong foods for your pet.
Last but not least, you are encouraged to pay more attention to and take care of your lovely cat well so your pet does not get sick fast.
