고양이가 열에 대처하도록 돕는 방법

As we approach the middle of summer and the temperatures really begin to soar, spare a thought for your feline friend who may be suffering the effects of the heat much worse than you are…

Cats sweat through their paws so it can be difficult to detect when a cat is getting too hot. You may notice them groom themselves a lot more than usual because as the saliva on their fur dries and evaporates it aids in cooling them down. If it reaches 90 degrees (F) indoors, your cat will begin to pant, which is a sure-fire way to tell that they are really feeling the heat.

The best thing you can do for your cat when it gets really hot is to have a constant supply of cold, cool water and that there are plenty of shady locations for your feline to hang out in. In addition, there are some other methods you can adopt to help keep your kitty cool.

Tips for keeping cats cool
  • Wrap a bag of frozen peas or ice in a towel and place it somewhere for your cat to lie down on. The peas and ice move about and is quite comfortable for your cat.
  • Place a pan of ice in front of a fan and let it blow in your cat's direction, providing refreshing cool air.
  • Dampen some towels for your cat to lie down on.
  • If you have a long-haired cat, get them a summer suitable haircut, particularly on their bellies so they can cool off by lying on tiles.
  • 젖은 손이나 젖은 종이 타월로 고양이를 문질러주십시오.
  • Groom them regularly to get rid of any hairballs. Grooming also helps to keep them cool.
  • Make an alcohol/water mix that you can rub them with.
  • Let your cat stand for a few minutes in 2 inches of cold water - they might not enjoy it at first though!
  • Keep your cat calm and don't get them to exert themselves too much.
  • Buy an automated water fountain or at least have a few bowls of fresh, cool water dotted inside and outside your home.
  • Play a game by getting your cat to chase ice cubes on the floor - fun and cooling at the same time!
일부 고양이 주인의 경우, 과열 고양이는 물을 마시지 않아 탈수 증상이 더욱 심해질 수 있습니다. 고양이가 수분 섭취를 계속해서하는 것은 매우 중요합니다. 눈 마름모 또는 주사기에 물을 채우고 고양이 방울 구석에 두 방울 떨어진다. 당신이 질식 시키거나 물이 폐에 들어가기 때문에 물을 쏘지 마십시오.

A special mention goes to owners of white cats because they are the most at risk of becoming sunburnt and potentially developing skin cancer, particularly on their ears and nose. If you own a white cat, keep them out of the sun as much as you can and apply sunscreen to their most vulnerable areas. You can speak to your vet to get a recommendation on a cat-friendly sunscreen.

More than just hot: heatstroke

Your cat's temperature should be between 100.5 to 102.5 degrees (F). You would have to use a rectal or ear thermometer to check on this as that's the only way. If your cat gets very overheated they could be in danger of developing heatstroke...

열사병은 과도하게 고온에 있기 때문에 신체의 정상 온도 조절 시스템이 작동하지 않아 열이 발생합니다. 장기 기능 장애를 포함하여 재앙의 영향을 미칠 수 있으므로 키티가 조금 더운 것 같다고 의심되면 수의사에게 가져 가서 즉시 도움을 받아 체온을 조절하고 IV 유체를받을 수 있습니다.

열사병의 징후와 증상은 다음과 같습니다.
  • Dehydration
  • Panting
  • 과도한 타액
  • Respiratory distress / hyperventilation
  • 발작
  • Congested mucous membranes
  • Cardiac arrhythmias
  • Dazed state
  • Coma
  • Vomiting or diarrhoea with blood in it
  • Anxiety or pacing
  • 혼수
  • Dark red gums
애완 동물이 열사병을 당했다고 생각하면 수의사에게 가져 가야합니다. 그 동안에는 발에 술을 문지르거나 젖은 수건을 사용하거나 애완 동물을 향해 운반 할 때 팬을 배치하여 도울 수 있습니다. 그러나 애완 동물의 상태가 저체온으로 빨리 전환 될 수 있기 때문에 지속적으로 또는 오랜 기간 동안해서는 안됩니다. 그리고 주기적으로 머리 위에 얼음을 놓아두면 애완 동물의 상태를 완화시키는 데 도움이 될 수 있습니다.

Note: If your pet has heatstroke once, it is possibly more susceptible of developing it again.
