Filed under: You knew that... — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — Cynara @ 5:39 pm

dogThe alimentary allergies can affect any dog or cat, but they are not so common. 
 
The animal usually resists the protein in the food, as milk or meat. The most typical reaction in dogs is an itch dispersing for the body, while the cats develop itches in the area of the face and head. With less frequency, the reaction is vomit or diarrhea. 
 
In some cases, the animal develops a more serious allergic reaction to the food and edemas appear. The edemas usually appear in 20 to 60 minutes, around the eyes and of the nose. 
 
If the animal is with a very strong reaction, you will usually notice breathing problems, could take to a breathing stop. It is treated of an emergency and the animal should be taken to the veterinarian immediately. 
 
The allergic reaction to feed can be controlled easily once discovered and avoided the responsible ingredient by the allergy. 
 
The process of elimination of foods indicates which of them exactly causes problems. That means to do with that the animal eats a diet that never ate before. After the skin of the animal is normal, increase to the diet the suspicious foods, one of every time to discover which provokes the allergy of them.

Filed under: You knew that... — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Cynara @ 3:34 pm

dogWhen we thought about First Aid for domestic animals, we limited ourselves to emergencies, as a running over, or a shock, etc. However, all of the owners of animals come across daily problems, as infections in the ear, cuts in the paws or digestive problems. 
 
Frequently, you will discover that the techniques of First Aid are useful. Those basic techniques are for hundreds of situations involving dogs and cats. 
 
And what is more important, in situations really dramatic, they can save the life of your animal. 
 
The contention of the animal has 3 purposes: it protects the person of being bitten by the animal; it restricts the movements of the animal, impeding that the bruise worsens and it does with that the animal is stopped to be examined and practiced medicine. 
 
The cardiopulmonary resuscitation combines the artificial breathing with the compression expresses of the heart, what helps to move the blood for the body, when the heart for of beating. 
 
Whenever the skin breaks up, bacteria or any other strange material, even the hair can contaminate the wound and potentially to cause infection. The bleedind is a mechanism of natural cleaning, that it helps to eliminate the dangerous substance. Don’t clean wounds with abundant bleeding, because that will just do with that they bleed more.

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , , — Cynara @ 1:42 pm

catThe asphyxia happens when the air doesn’t get to arrive to the lungs. The cats, particularly, like to play with plastic sacks and, they don’t get to tear them with the claws, they can suffocate quickly. They can also coil their collars or if it coils in strings of blinds to if they suffocate, while the dogs get mixed up with the guides. An animal can suffocate when being exposed to poisonous steams, as smoke or carbon monoxide, when having a strange body in the throat. 
 
During the asphyxia, the animal makes an effort to breathe, usually stretching out the neck. They will be unconscious quickly and will stop breathing, and their gums and language will be blue for the lack of oxygen. An immediate service is the only thing that can save the life of the animal: 
 
1 - take him for the fresh air: the best treatment for smoke is to take the animal for the fresh air. Unlike other asphyxia types, the gums and the language of the animal will be blush. 
 
2 - liberate him of the suffocating element: if the animal is suffocating with a plastic, tear or cut the material around his snout. 
 
3 - liberate the aerial way: the animals frequently are with objects arrested in the throat and they suffocate. Try to pull the object outside with the hands or with pliers. 
 
4 - stretche out the neck: if the animal doesn’t begin to breathe spontaneously, stretch out his neck so that the throat is not curved, hold his  language and daintily pull her outside so that it liberates the bottom of the throat.

Electric discharge in animals, what to do?

Filed under: Animal news — Tags: , , , , — Cynara @ 4:35 pm

tomadaThe electric discharge usually happens in nestlings, because they chew any thing, including electric threads and of telephone. 
 
The most serious electric discharges can provoke convulsions or to stop the heart, and the damages can be insidious, because they appear slowly, sometimes taking to an irregular heart beat or difficulties in the breathing, many days after the accident. 
 
Most of the shocks that happen in a domestic atmosphere is very far away from that gravity. The animals will be with burns in the lips, in the corners of the mouth or in the language, then see what to do: 
 
1 – turn off the energy – the electric current usually provokes muscular spasms, turning impossible that the animals release the thread that are biting. 
 
2 – if he is with convulsion covers his head with a dark towel to protect him of the light and of the noise, that can help for the convulsion to finish faster. 
 
3 - maintain the animal quiet – the stress does with he needs more oxygen and him can have difficulty to breathe. 
 
4 - give ice for him – the ice can relieve the pain of burns in the mouth, you can put the ice in the water to drink. 
 
5 - treat the burns – burns in the mouth can take some time to heal, verify if they are clean and gown the foods in the blender to facilitate the feeding.
