照顾小猫-宠物主人需要知道的一切,以养一只健康的小猫



Dr. Sudeep Wahla
声望动物医院

What is the most important thing to know about raising a healthy kitten?

猫和小猫是令人惊奇的动物. 他们很快学会了自给自足. 有几件事需要知道,知道它们喜欢在什么基质上小便,然后得到那个小盒子. 确保你知道你要用什么疫苗以及你要让他们过什么样的生活 ... 他们会在室内吗? 他们要去户外吗? 一定要定期检查它们是否有寄生虫,知道它们来自哪里. 是外面流浪猫的吗? Did they come from an indoor kitty who you knew from someone?

有一个健康的环境. 他们需要大量的锻炼. 如果你有其他宠物或其他猫或狗, 在把小猫带回家之前,有一些事情需要考虑. Kittens will be playful and naughty, just like any other babies. 不要这样想:“我要去养一只小猫,整天抱着它,它们会很可爱的。.“是的,他们很棒,但他们确实需要一些工作.

What are the right and wrong ways to pick up my kitten?

Right ways … Depending on their age and lifestyle, 我想大概四个月吧, you can always scruff them from the back of their scruff, 就在肩胛骨上方. 这意味着抓取一小块皮肤,就像它们的妈妈会捡起它们一样. 但另一种方法你可以把他们抱起来,在他们的胸部,铐住他们,然后抓住他们的整个身体.

错误的方法是用一条腿把它们捡起来, 摇摆人, 或者用两条腿把它们拿起来晃来晃去. 你也不要从肘部拿起,因为肘部不能支撑胸部. 你一定要牢牢抓住胸部、腹部或颈背. 你不希望用任何肢体或腋窝,或任何其他方式把它们捡起来.

我怎么知道我的小猫是快乐和健康的?

我告诉人们小猫像婴儿. They play hard, they sleep hard, and they poop and pee. As long as your kitten is pooping and peeing a lot, 玩硬, 吃好, 和睡好, 那它们就是只非常健康的小猫.

我应该怎样喂我的小猫?

这取决于你的小猫多大了. 只要他们有牙齿,小猫的食物. 它们会做狗粮或者湿食物. 如果他们没有牙齿, 一般在四周以下, bottle feeding and they have kitten milk replacers for fostering kittens.

我的小猫可能需要什么产品?

当你把小猫带回家的时候,你可能需要它的产品:猫砂盒, 垃圾, 抓文章, and sometimes they like the cat towers that they can climb. 很多小猫都喜欢床. 有些人不太喜欢床. 我喜欢带铃铛的羽毛小玩具, 激光指针, little balls that they can play with—things to keep them active.

How soon should I bring my new kitten in to see the veterinarian?

I would bring your new kitten in as soon as you get them. As soon as you have your kitten, 安排一个约会 the next day. 菠菜台子有一些很好的信息和建议. 他们需要马上做健康检查.

How can I get the most out of my first vet visit with my new kitten?

写下你的问题. 我有很多人来到兽医诊所,他们有很多问题. 他们看到菠菜台子,然后说,“哦,我不记得我要问什么了.我总是告诉别人:“没关系。. 下次来访时,写下你的问题. 这样的话,菠菜台子就能得到答案了.”

What will a veterinarian look for during an initial kitten care visit?

During initial kitten care visits, we look for a couple of things. 第一,它们到底是雄性还是雌性? 有时幼猫的情况很难判断. You might have a female cat who you named Alice, and really they’re an Al.

然后菠菜台子去找跳蚤. We look for any parasites that are visible during a physical exam, 但很多时候是内在的, 所以菠菜台子需要做粪便测试,因为人们也会从宠物身上感染寄生虫. 菠菜台子会检查他们的眼睛和耳朵,确保没有耳螨或耳感染. We make sure they weren't born with any cleft palates. Then we make sure t在这里 are no umbilical hernias because, 随着他们的成长, 他们可能会有疝气, 特别是当小猫, 他们生来就有. 菠菜台子还确保没有先天性神经系统问题或其他菠菜台子能检测到的问题.

What are some early signs and symptoms of health issues in my kitten?

Some early signs and symptoms of health issues can be sneezing, 斜视的眼睛, 可能有眼液或眼液流出来, 一些过多的绿色或透明的鼻分泌物. 猫 don't have that much discharge from the nose, but if you notice that it’s always wet around their nostrils, this could be an underlying respiratory tract infection. Sometimes if you see a little rice or grain stuck to their fur or tail, 它可以是小寄生虫, 比如一条绦虫.

这些是菠菜台子在早期阶段需要注意的事情. 此外,如果他们吃得不好,体重也没有按照他们应该的方式增加. Some cats have a really big belly that feels bloated, and we obviously want to know if they have diarrhea. 我在思考. 苍白的牙龈是另一种可能是他们的血液流动有问题.

为什么避免自我诊断可能的小猫健康问题很重要?

It's really important because I've seen problems w在这里, 如果他们第一天就带过来的话, it could have been so manageable and the kittens could have gotten better. 但有些人尝试自我诊断或自我护理, 他们会去普通的宠物店买一些宠物药水什么的, 例如, 的眼睛. 眼睛看起来很脏. They go to a store and say, "My kitten's eyes are looking gunky.然后其中一名员工给了他们一些药水. They come to see us and say, "Oh, I've been using the drops for a week.“现在他们的眼睛都是绿色的,而且还黏糊糊的,感染也变得更严重了. 我见过一些小猫甚至失明,因为人们等待,他们试图自我诊断. If you think your kitten's having an issue, please don't self-diagnose. 马上带他们去看兽医.

我的小猫什么时候应该接种疫苗?

It depends on w在这里 the kitten came from and w在这里 they are. When I say w在这里 they came from, were they a stray cat? 它们还在以母亲为食吗? But generally, they can get vaccinations as early as six weeks.

常见问题-照顾小猫

What should I expect at my kitten's very first veterinary visit?

At your first visit you'll get introduced to the team. 您将了解到菠菜台子将如何在不同的生活方式和阶段照顾您的宠物. 菠菜台子会讨论很多关于行为的信息,并做一个全面的身体检查. 菠菜台子要确保没有未被发现的先天性异常, 或者潜伏的寄生虫,比如跳蚤或蜱虫. 菠菜台子会全面讨论你的小猫的健康和需求. 也要准备好讨论生活方式. Are you thinking about having an indoor kitty or outdoor kitty? 你家里有多少只宠物? 所以这些都是你去看兽医时需要讨论的问题.

What should I ask my veterinarian at my kitten's first appointment?

问问你的小猫需要吃多少食物,需要做多少运动,这是很好的. Especially if you're unfamiliar, ask for good resources. 万一你的兽医关门了,最近的急救中心在哪里? That's always good to know so you're not scrambling at the last minute. We like to give all that information ahead of time, 菠菜台子引导人们访问菠菜台子的网站, pit-road.com. 菠菜台子有这些客户资源作为猫护理指南,他们可以在那里找到所有这些信息. 因为在参观的时候会让人不知所措, we give them a reference to go back to that summarizes what we discussed.

How often does my kitten need to go to the veterinarian?

Bring the kitten in right away so we can discuss this. Different ages require them to come at different times. 例如,假设你有一只14周大的猫. They might not be coming as frequently as that of a 4 or 6-week-old kitten, 菠菜台子需要经常见谁.

我的小猫需要什么疫苗?

Vaccinations typically in kittens are multiple vaccines known as FERCP, 猫白血病, 和狂犬病, 这取决于你的猫的生活方式.

Does my kitten need vaccinations even if I keep them inside?

这是菠菜台子经常遇到的问题. 我的回答是, 像一只小猫, 如果它们严格地待在室内,并且与室外的其他猫没有接触, 我指的是零接触, 你不能让窗户开着, 你没有纱门,它们可以爬上去,可能另一只小猫会出来打喷嚏,把一些呼吸道喷雾剂喷到它们的眼睛或脸上, 或嘶嘶声. 它们不会出去到后院再回来——它们严格地呆在室内. 那么菠菜台子的建议是让他们抓紧给小猫接种疫苗, 菠菜台子每年给他们接种疫苗, 然后菠菜台子就可以拖延了. 如果他们有可能出去的话, regular vaccinations at least annually should be required.

What kind of preventative care does my kitten need?

所以预防保健是菠菜台子诊所的支柱. 这是菠菜台子哲学的一部分, 预防保健就是这么做的, 防止事情在以后的生活中发生...为了防止小猫生病,要防止它们把任何东西传染给主人.

所以一些预防措施是通过粪便测试或粪便测试来检查寄生虫. Because sometimes you can't see parasites that are worms on the stool. It can be eggs, and these can be zoonotic, or transmissible to people. 菠菜台子给他们接种适当的疫苗,以保护他们免受常见的疾病. 菠菜台子对它们进行血液测试,以确保它们不是天生就带有病毒,而有些小猫有时会感染这种病毒. 菠菜台子检查他们的心脏和肺. So, regular veterinary appointments are going to be very important. 不要忘记跳蚤和蜱虫的控制. 猫 are very good at hiding fleas, as they groom often.

我应该在什么时候给我的小猫做绝育手术?

一般来说,菠菜台子说4 - 6个月的时间是一个好猫-公或母-绝育或绝育. 菠菜台子倾向于等到女性6个月后再做,但男性可以在4个月大的时候就做.

One quick tip I want to give you guys as far as kitten care. 菠菜台子做的第一件事就是当菠菜台子把小猫带回家的时候,菠菜台子会用一个载体. 所有的猫都应该被带进兽医诊所,因为它们会受到惊吓,会跳起来逃跑.

我给人们的建议是,不要把它们放在载体里,直接带它们去兽医那里,然后带回家, 这是你唯一一次使用运营商. 因为他们会讨厌进入航母,而你将在他们的余生中与他们战斗. So, what I recommend to people is when you get a kitten, 把它们放到载体里, 给他们真正想要的食物, 让门开着,让他们进出, 让它成为一个快乐的地方. Put them in, close it, walk around the house, walk outside and back in. 一周做几次. 这样当他们进航母的时候, they don't associate it with just going to the vet, 打针,看医生, and your life as a pet owner will be much more pleasant...而不是为了把你的胳膊挤进猫笼而被抓伤.
