Cat Naps

Wednesday, July 6, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

catpodIs your cat “cat napping” its life away? I find mine in their cat beds, cat pods or even under the bed shutting out the world. Don’t be concerned. Domestic cats are similar or wild cats in many ways including their sleep and activity patterns which are called crepuscular. This means that they are active at dawn and dusk which is when their prey is out and about. The rest of the hours in the day are spent conserving their energy for the big expenditure they must make in order to hunt. Our domesticated cats obviously don’t need to worry about such things but their genes enable them to keep a schedule full of down time. An average of 16 hours a day or two thirds of their lives are spent resting or sleeping. ┬áIf you notice any big changes like listlessness or not eating, contact your veterinarian. Otherwise just get a comfortable cat bed and your cat will love you.

Doggie Sunburn

dogsunburnCan your best friend get sunburn? The answer is yes and most of the time we don’t think about this since dogs are covered with fur. Don’t ignore the symptoms. The most susceptible areas are the nose, ears and stomach. These areas are susceptible to overexposure more than areas the are covered with fur. Look for dry, cracked skin and curling around the ears. Some other signs are constant scratching of the tender areas following by a whimper He may shrink away from you when you try to pet him. If the sunburn is severe, your dog may have a fever.

There is really no pet medication that can cure sunburn in dogs but there are products that can help prevent sunburn and products that can sooth the skin. You can buy a pet sunscreen from a pet store. DO NOT USE HUMAN SUNSCREEN ON PETS! I emphasize this fact because sunscreen for humans contains zinc and zinc is toxic to dogs.

Remember, when your dog is out in the heat, always keep his water bowl filled with fresh water. If he is on is dog leash taking a walk, try not to keep him exposed to the extreme heat for too long.
