You may have had the same cat for how many years and have already mastered all the ways he goes throughout the day and the weird noise he makes when he feels sick or happy or tired. And of course, you will eventually know if something is bugging your furry baby. But unfortunately for these pets, they cannot talk like human beings do, so it will take up quite more time for new pet owners to realize that there is something seriously wrong with their fur babies. Here are some tips and some signs that could tell you that maybe your pet cat or dog is not feeling better the past few days, so that they wont get into further harm.

You might catch your cat or dog experience some swelling on their lymph nodes

Generally, fleas make your cats and dog scratch like crazy, but if you have noticed some weird signs like a swollen lymph node, it may mean that the fleas have carried with them a parasite that made you pet get infected with Bartonella. For you to be able to prevent your lovely and cute pets from excessive scratching and itching, you can purchase the best flea treatment for cats and dogs if you have noticed that your little fur ball of sunshine has been immensely scratching and itching itself, but if you have actually noticed that some little ticks have sneaked in even with the treatment, then you should bring your pet right away to the nearest veterinarian in town to have them treated accordingly as soon as possible. It is essential that you do everything in your might to prevent fleas and stopping them from lurking into your pet’s bodies since these fleas can cause a ton of problems that you would not want your pets to go through.

Your pet may have changed its posture
If you notice that your pet has not been walking properly like it should be, walking on one leg over the other, being unable to properly sit down, or is sleeping in a really strange position, it could be a very obvious sign that they are experiencing some problems like an infection, an injury, or arthritis. For those who have pet rabbits, if they are hunched or their posture is bent down, this may be a sign of stasis, which is a really painful and dangerous slow down of their gastrointestinal tract, which happens commonly to pet rabbits.

Are your pets eating well?
Your pet cats and dogs have their own little cute ways on how they tell you that they dislike the meal you gave them, and it can be very normal for them to skip their lunch when it is scorching hot outside of the house, but if your pets continue to have weird eating habits, it may be a tell-tale sign that there is something wrong with them.
