Owners of Alaskan dogs should make it clear that they need to be taken to a pet hospital immediately after a fever. Based on the diagnosis, the veterinarian will decide whether to treat the dog with medication or injection. It is not up to the dog to take the medicine or get the injection but to choose the appropriate treatment based on the diagnosis and the veterinarian’s judgment. But if the Alaskan dog suddenly has a fever, what can be done about it?
High Body temperature in Alaskan dogs is certainly the most common symptom of a fever. Dogs usually have a body temperature of between 37.5 and 38.5 degrees for adults, and higher for puppies. If your dog’s temperature is above 39.5 degrees, it is considered to have a high fever. The most obvious symptoms of a dog’s fever are inactivity, lethargy, and lack of energy even when out and about.
Other symptoms of fever in dogs are very rapid inhalation, and if you look at the belly of an Alaskan dog, the color of the belly is redder than usual, as well as the whites of the eyes.
There are many reasons for Alaskan Malamute fever, such as cold fever, gastroenteritis leading to fever, canine distemper, small, and so on. When we found that the dog has fever symptoms, can not panic, need to calm down and then carefully observe the state of the dog, and then to the hospital in time for diagnosis and treatment.
To relieve the symptoms of Alaskan Malamute fever, we also need to follow the World Health Organization guidelines for drug use and injection. If the dog can take the medicine orally, we’d better not take the injection method. If dogs can be treated with intramuscular injections, we’d better not use intravenous injection. It’s important to note that you should consult your veterinarian before using any of these medications, says Alaskan Malamute’s director of the Center for Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, San Diego. It is best to be under the guidance of the veterinarian, to take the appropriate amount of medication to treat fever.
