What precautions should be taken when pets get sick?

Update Time:2023/7/17
1. What problems do pets often encounter when they get sick?

Body temperature loss
Pets are sick, especially when they are more serious, because they are weak and cannot eat to generate heat, resulting in an imbalance of body heat. After the body temperature drops to a certain temperature, it will lead to hypothermia, weakness, shock and even death. Therefore, if pets are sick, they must be kept warm.

Pet sickness will affect appetite, and there will be less appetite. At the same time, the digestive system of pets will also be affected after illness, resulting in the degradation of some pets' digestive ability.

Insufficient nutrition
Many pets do not eat or drink when they are sick, and the pets are already very serious at this time. Even pets that can still eat some, because of illness, the digestive system is also affected, resulting in insufficient nutrition for pets.

Urinary and bowel problems
After pets get sick, some pets will experience incontinence, that is, uncontrollable excretion and defecation. Although some pets are not yet incontinent, they can only excrete there because they cannot stand up.


2. What should we do when pets are sick?

Find the source
If the pet is sick, first help the pet find out which virus is causing the illness, and then treat them.

Good environment
Giving pets a quiet, warm, comfortable and well-ventilated environment is to give pets a good environment so that pets can recover from illness with peace of mind.

Maintain body temperature
If the pet has the possibility of hypothermia, consider keeping the pet warm, covering it with a quilt, covering it with aluminum foil, etc. And to consider supplementary temperature, small sun, baby warmer, hot water bottle and even air conditioner can be considered.


Regulate the stomach
If the pet has indigestion or anorexia, etc., you can consider feeding the pet some probiotics to regulate the stomach. Of course, probiotics need to be fed separately from antibiotics to prevent each other from canceling out the effects of each other.

Sufficient food and water
Pets generally have a poor appetite when they are sick, and they seldom eat, but if they don’t eat, they will have less strength to resist the disease. Therefore, it is recommended that during the pet's illness, even if the pet does not want to eat, it is necessary to prepare sufficient food and water in the cage at all times to ensure that the pet can eat a little at any time.

Supplement nutrition
Prepare some wet food, cat strips, etc. that pets usually like to eat. If the pet can eat by itself, eat some to supplement energy. You can also prepare some electrolytic multivitamins, glucose, etc., and give the pets to drink by gavage when they cannot eat.

Clean up excrement in time
For animals that are incontinent or unable to go to the toilet, detect and clean up their excess waste in time. It is also beneficial to keep their bodies clean by preventing excrement from contaminating their bodies.

Be there and comfort them
When pets are very afraid of getting sick, at this moment, what they need most is your company and comfort. Spend as much time as possible with them if you can, and try to comfort your pet if they are frightened.
