Life is always bumpy, cats are often injured and fractured, fractures for cats are relatively serious, if the cat is naughty accidentally caused by fractures, and we do not have a 24-hour veterinary hospital around, then, how to do fractures in cats? Are there any countermeasures?
I. Performance of fracture in cats
The affected soft tissue of the sick cat is swollen, painful and restless, howling or moaning, muscle trembling, sweating and dysfunction. Local bone deformation, abnormal activity, pressure pain when touched, the fracture of the bone can be felt, while there is a friction sound, but there is no bone friction sound when the fracture is not complete or the fracture end of the bone is separated far away. If it occurs in the extremities, the activity is abnormal, the sick cat is lame and has difficulty standing, the open fracture is locally traumatized and bleeding, and some bone fragments or the broken ends of the bone are visible protruding from the wound; some can cause hemorrhagic anemia and even death by shock.
Second, the cat fracture disposal methods
1. Fixation and rehabilitation, with appropriate exercise and drug therapy.
2. Rectification: the dislocated bone can be restored to its original position by manipulation, which can be done under general or local anesthesia to reduce the cat's pain. The sooner it is repositioned, the better.
3. Fixation: Immediately after the rectification, the fixation site should be fixed, hair cut, lined with skimmed cotton, and fixed with a bamboo plate (wooden plate), metal brace, plaster bandage, etc.
Third, the emergency treatment after fracture
Drug therapy: internal bruising pills can be taken. For open fractures, antibiotics or sulfonamides should be used continuously to control the wound before and after rectification and fixation to prevent secondary infection.
