FAQ for Cat

abnormal temperature

Signs include discoloration of the frozen area; pale skin or even blue in color initially, looking black and dead in later stages; lack of pain or sensation at the affected area, or a lot of pain, especially when the area starts to warm up. The tail, tips of the ears and the pads of the feet are most susceptible.

1. Take your cat out of the cold.

2. Spray the affected area with warm water.

Ensure it is not hot enough to cause a burn.

3. Lightly apply a warm compress to the area.

4. Do not rub or apply pressure to the area.

Rubbing or pressure could worsen the damage.

5. Take your cat to the veterinary hospital immediately.

Your vet will check for permanent damage. If the tissue is dead, local amputation may be necessary.
