Studies show that people with pets deal with stress better than non-pet-owners. Sometimes pets need support, especially when they are sick. To ensure your dog or your cat stay healthy, you should pay attention to their behaviour. Any slight change could be due to a medical disorder and should be treated immediately.
Here are 7 signs that suggest your pet needs medical attention.
Sometimes pets suffer from kennel cough which goes away within 2 weeks.
However, persistent coughing, lasting more than 3 weeks is never a good sign. It may be related to lung or heart diseases, bronchitis, pneumonia, heartworm, or a tracheal collapse.
Kennel cough are usually serious for kittens, puppies, and animals with pushed-in faces, including bulldogs, boxers, Persian, Scottish fold dogs and British Short-hair cats. Their unusual head anatomy may cause additional breathing problems.
