It's important to pay special attention to the outdoor cats that we care for, whether they are strictly outdoor or indoor-outdoor cats. As the summer heats up, there are certain measures pet owners must take to ensure their safety. Assisi Animal Health discusses four tips on caring for outdoor cats in the hot weather:
1. Plenty of water. Prevent dehydration by providing enough water for the outdoor cats. Place large water bowls throughout different areas of the yard away from the sun, and keep an eye out to make sure they are always full.
2. Frequent feedings. Cat food attracts several kinds of bugs and pests, so it's important to constantly change out the food and not leave it sitting for too long. It is recommended to pick up food after about 45 minutes to keep the bugs at bay.
3. Provide shady areas. Shade plays a major part in keeping cool, so if you don't have many shrubs or trees, make sure there are structures in place to shelter the cats when it gets too hot. This can include space under the deck or a specially built cat shelter.
4. Treat injuries and inflammation. Not only does warm weather encourage cats to run and play, but the heat also causes cases of inflammation to worsen. This increased exercise enhances the likelihood of injuries occurring. If you can coax them indoors, try therapeutic methods such as targeted pulsed electromagnetic field therapy via the Assisi Loop® to reduce pain and inflammation.
