10 Things Most People Don't Know About 샌즈카지노

All cats have to suffer bug bites at some point during their lives. While some cats are less susceptible, some are more susceptible to bites from bugs and insects. Similarly, some bug bites on cats can be cured with simple home remedies, while some cases might need immediate attention of a veterinarian. However, most cases can be easily treated at home if you are able to spot the symptoms and apply the appropriate treatment in time.

Symptoms

Since it is highly doubtful for you to have witnessed 코인카지노 the actual occurrence of the bite, the only clues for your cats problem is the symptoms displayed by them. The symptoms of cat bug bites can range from mild to extremely severe reactions depending on the type of bug or insect responsible and the unique characteristics of each cat.

Fleas and ticks are some of the most common critters to infest your pet. The symptoms for flea bites are usually constant scratching and biting of various body parts. If the cat has hypersensitivity then the symptoms are more severe and can lead to loss of hair and might even cause ulcers in the lips and skin disease.

Mosquito bites are not as common as flea bites and they are most often isolated, exhibiting symptoms like swelling, itching and redness. Swelling and pain are some of the symptoms for stings from bees and wasps. The site of bite might also be warm to touch. Severe reactions to stings include vomiting, redness around the eyes and lips, respiratory problems and rapid swelling of the bite site. Immediate medical assistance is required if your pet exhibits severe symptoms.

Diagnosis

Most cat bug bites are mild and can be diagnosed with a physical exam by a veterinarian. However, some severe cases might need a skin test for accurate diagnosis of the problem and to implement proper treatment for cat bug bites.

Treatment

Most bug bites on cats can be treated in a similar manner. However, specific treatments might be needed for certain severe cases, like flea bites. Generally, fleas infest the whole body of your cat and even its environment. Treatment involves using flea control products on your pet and its environment for an extended period of time to get rid of the adult fleas and the eggs. In addition, you might also have to use medications to relieve the irritation and itching.

For stings from bees and wasps it is better to apply the medication after removing the stinger from the site. Gently scraping away the stinger is way better than removing it with tweezers, as it might cause the bee or wasp venom to spread further into your pets system.

It is important to prevent your cat from scratching or biting the site of bite as it will worsen the condition and might lead to infection. To reduce pain and swelling you can use a cold compress and a mixture of baking soda and water is a good remedy to relieve the itching and irritation. Make sure that you trim the hair around the bite site before applying any treatment. You can also use topical ointments that contain natural ingredients like Echinacea, Aloe Vera, red alder and Tea Tree oil to treat cat bug bites effectively.

Numerous articles have been written about the importance of spaying and neutering cats and the health benefits that are gained by doing so. Many people are aware that the sterilization process is a good thing and abide by the usual recommendations. However, every once in a while it is a good thing to write a reminder to those, who do not believe in spaying or neutering, about why they should.

Spring and summer is known across our country as the "kitten season." Many female cats will be giving birth and many kittens will be unwanted and end up in shelters or even put to death by their owners.

A female cat can come into heat as early as four months - especially in the springtime. Locking a cat in the house may seem like a great alternative, but it plays havoc with a cat's health.

The reproductive system that nature created in a female cat is amazingly efficient. Having kittens is a very natural part of a female cat's life and not having kittens, without the help of being spayed is very hard on a cat.

Male cats are always willing and able to mate, and if they do not have anyone to mate with, it does not present a problem. They will just sit around and wait until a female presents itself.

Female cats on the other hand have reproductive needs that have to be met, that is the way nature created the female cat. If you do not want kittens, it is important to have your female spayed by at least six months of age.

Why? The cat's breeding season is usually between January and October and females go into heat every two weeks until they are bred and have a litter of kittens. A female can produce a litter of kittens every 65 days!

If a female does not mate and repeatedly comes into heat, the danger of life threatening uterine infections and uterine and ovarian cancer can become a sad part of your cat's life. Spaying also reduces the risk of mammary cancer.

Spaying your female between four and six months is easier on them, as they have less postoperative complications, they suffer less bleeding, require less surgery time, their organs are seen more easily and they recuperate more rapidly.

Males that are not neutered can become aggressive toward their owners, will get into fights with other males as they search for amorous females. The frequent fights expose them to infectious diseases, abscesses from wounds and many males will spray pungent urine to mark their territory, which can and usually includes the house. It is recommended that males be neutered between nine and ten months of age, this is before they reach their sexual maturity.

I recently had our new male kitten neutered at six months, his surgery took less than five minutes, he needed only two minutes of anesthesia and we had him home by the end of the day, happy as he could be.

Veterinary research has shown that the earlier you neuter cats the less behavioral problems you will have. Sterilized cats tend to be friendlier.

Both male and female cats that are not spayed or neutered have a tendency to spray, wander off and are apt to get lost or hit by a car.

A single cat (spayed/neutered) has no need for sex and does not miss what is never has known. Even though a spayed/neutered cat has a lower metabolism there is no need for the cat to become overweight or obese, that blame falls on the owner's shoulders for over feeding. Our 12-year-old male has maintained his same weight for over the last 7 years and is beautiful, slim and trim.

Reduce your cat's health risks by spaying/neutering, the earlier the better and you will have one happy cat, less vet bills and when the news man on the television asks "do you know where your children are," you will know your cat(s) are home where they belong.
