And if you haven't already taken the necessary measures to keep your pet safe during this cold season, Dr. Patrick Mahaney has a few wonderful tips that will definitely keep your baby in good health:
Wintry Climate Changes:
Frostbite happens when the skin is exposed to extreme temperatures, which restricts blood flow to the body’s surfaces. Reduced delivery of oxygen and nutrients and removal of metabolic waste contributes to cell damage or death. Body tissues become cold to the touch and appear pale pink, white, or even blue. Unresolved frostbite can progress to gangrene, which requires ongoing and costly veterinary medical and surgical treatment.
Hypothermia occurs when body temperature drops below the normal range of 100-102.5 +/- 0.5 in a healthy cat or dog. In order to preserve the vital organs (brain, heart, kidneys, liver, and lungs), blood flow to the extremities (limbs, feet, ears, etc.) is restricted. Hypothermia also contributes to frostbite.
Exposure to moisture increases your pet’s likelihood of developing frostbite and hypothermia. A healthy fur pelt or moisture repelling-fabric coat can provide limited protection from nature’s assault. Geriatric, juvenile, mobility compromised, and sick pets are more prone to suffering negative health consequences of exposure to wintry weather.
Cats are pretty resilient, but when a kitty has allergies, their bodies can be susceptible to a lot of environmental dangers.
So what are the symptoms and how can you treat your feline so he or she will be just fine?
