Know the Signs of Hypothermia and Hyperthermia ...and what to do! Hypothermia    and   Hyperthermia   are   two   extreme   changes   in   body   temperature that   can   be   very   harmful   to   your   pet   and   must   be   treated   promptly.      When   the   body temperature   becomes   too   low,   Hypothermia,   your   pet   may   experience   symptoms such   as   violent   shivering,   shallow   breathing   and   a   slow   heart   rate.      If   your   pet   is experiencing   any   of   these   symptoms,   bring   them   to   a   warm   room   and   cover   them with    warm    towels    or    blankets    (you    can    warm    up    the    towels    or    blankets    up    by running   them   through   the   clothes   dryer).      You   can   also   use   warm   water   bottles wrapped   in   towels   or   a   hair   dryer   on   its   lowest   setting.      Acting   quickly   can   prevent permanent damage to the tissues and possibly death. Hyperthermia    (Heatstroke)   occurs   when   the   body’s   temperature   rises   above 104   degrees   and   can   be   fatal   if   not   treated   within   the   first   hour.      Symptoms   include rapid    panting,    thick/sticky    saliva,    red    or    pale    gums,    vomiting    (sometimes    with blood),   diarrhea,   weakness,   dizziness,   shock   and   coma.      If   your   pet   experiences this,   remove   them   from   the   hot   area   immediately   and   wet   them   thoroughly   with cool,    not    cold,    water.        Using    cold    water    can    actually    cause    the    temperature    to decrease   too   low   and   can   create   complications.      Once   you   get   the   temperature down    to    103    degrees    then    dry    your    pet    thoroughly    and    take    them    to    your veterinarian.      Remember,   acting   quickly   and   calmly   in   these   situations   can   save your beloved pet’s life.
Every    pet    owner    should    have    some    basic    first    aid supplies    on    hand.    Here    is    a    list    of    supplies    to    put together for your first aid kit: - Absorbent compresses (gauze sponges assorted sizes) - Adhesive tape - Antibiotic ointment - Blanket (emergency blanket or space blanket) - Clean cloth - Cold compress - Gloves - Glucose paste or corn syrup (if your pet is diabetic or has a history of low blood sugar) - Grooming clippers - Hydrogen peroxide (3 percent) - Muzzle - Nylon leash - Petroleum jelly - Penlight - Rectal thermometer - Roll cohesive wrap (3-inch width) - Roll gauze (2-inch width) - Rubbing alcohol - Scissors (small with blunt end) - Syringe (baby dose size) - Sterile eye lubricate - Sterile saline eye wash - Styptic powder - Towel - Tweezers - Epsom salts (to make saline solution) - Benadryl (diphenhydramine) in appropriate dose for your pet's size, if approved by your vet for allergic reactions - List of emergency telephone numbers (including your pet's vet, an after-hours emergency veterinary hospital. - Poison Control Center (APCC): 1-800-764-7661 or 1-800-222-1222 - ASPCA: 888-426-4435 or 800-548-2423 or 800-222-1222 - Have your pet identification tags and any medications your pet is taking. It is good to have a kit for the house and the car. One can never know when an emergency will occur.
