Top tips to keep your dog cool this summer and avoid heat stroke.

June 27, 2017

 

Soaring temperatures and midday sun can play havoc with your dog’s health. Here are some of our top tips to help you keep your dog happy and healthy in the Summer sun.

One of the most common health problems dogs can experience in the summer is heat stroke, which is very serious in dogs and can be fatal in a matter of minutes.

If it’s a hot day, you need to remember these 4 things:

·         CAR SAFETY – Don’t leave your dog in a car, even with the window open as the dog can still overheat. When travelling in a car with your dog, turn the air-conditioner  up high. 

·         HYDRATION – Keep your dog hydrated, take plenty of water and a drinking bowl wherever you go.

·         SUNBURN – Watch out for sunburn; you can get non-toxic waterproof human sunscreen, or a formula designed for pets, to put on your dog’s ears, face and areas with little hair – this is especially important for pale colored dogs. Remember to re-apply sunscreen regularly, especially if they have been swimming.

·         STAY COOL – Don’t exercise your dog during the hottest part of the day, try to keep them in the shade between 11 and 3pm. Try shorter walks more often to avoid over-heating.
