Note the appearance of a cat. Dry and hot nose is not the only symptom of the disease of the animal. If your pet is unhealthy, it will likely fade and will puff up fur, reduced mobility, abruptly lost appetite and interest to everything. It should be wary and in the case when outgoing and playful home favorite suddenly starts most of the time spend in a closed and dark space such as in a closet or under the bed.
Observe the secretions of cats within a few days. The reason for going to the doctor must be constipation or diarrhea, blood in the stool, too dark or too light color feces. With the genitourinary system may signal disorders: urinary incontinence, crying animal when urinating, refusing to go to the usual place (if you visit the pan associated with pain and discomfort).
Conduct an independent inspection of the cat. Take her up, put her onto his lap, paws up, and gently touch the stomach. If it is swollen or hard, and your touch is clearly cause an animal pain, then the patient has problems with the gastrointestinal tract. Swipe your fingers across the skin surface: if there are any under the coat of ulcers, tumors and growths. Look cat in the eyes and ears: in a healthy animal, they should be clean, without purulent discharge. Open the cat's mouth: plaque and ulcers on the tongue, pungent odour indicate disease.
Weigh the cat, if you feel that she's drastically lost weight or gained. Locate the line of the pulse on the inner thigh and count it. If the result is above 120 beats per minute, perhaps the animal has a fever. You can check this by using an electronic thermometer, lubricate the tip with vaseline and typing for a few minutes in the anus under the tail of the animal. However, be prepared for the fact that the cat may not allow the owner to make her such manipulation.
Call the vet and list all the symptoms you found. Doctors sometimes give advice over the phone. But if you say that needs a personal inspection, without delay, bring the cat to the reception or call the vet at home.
