••FULL BODY CHECK•• Every pet parent needs to know the importance of full body checks. Checking your fur babies body at least once a day and becoming familiar with what’s normal and not normal can save a life! Every day (not exaggerating I actually do this every single day) while my cats are napping I do full body checks. Sometimes I have to check Cahcah twice a day because she likes to explore the wonderful outside world and I never truly know what she gets herself into! During a body check I start off with normal pets on the head then I start looking in their ears, checking teeth, running my fingers down their back for lumps/bumps, moving fur around looking for nicks/scratches, inspecting bellies for rashes/cuts, feelings legs for any sign of broken bones, feeling between their little toe beans, and even checking under their tails! Usually they have a couple scabs from their roughhousing and an occasional eye booger, but other than that I have been lucky enough to have two healthy cats!! Doing daily body checks has helped me keep me cats feeling their best! Last night during my daily routine I felt a knot on Fatboy’s stomach. At first I thought it was his leg because he was laying on his side but I repositioned him and sure enough he had a knot under his skin! I couldn’t see any signs of swelling and his belly looks like his normal fat belly but had I not body checked him I would have missed this knot! Me being the worry wort I am I contacted the vet immediately and we have an appointment set!! I’ll keep everyone updated on this and fingers crossed it’s nothing life threatening. I know this isn’t a training tip, but I had to share with you all how helpful it is to check your pets!
