1) TRY THE 5 SECOND HOT PAW TEST

Put the back of your hand on the pavement. If you can’t keep it there for five seconds, it’s too hot for paws!

2) IF IT’S GOING TO BE A HOT DAY

Take them for a walk early morning or evening. Stay safe and enjoy this glorious weather.

3) HOT CAR + DOG = DIAL 999

Did you know that when it’s 22° outside, the temperature inside a car can reach an unbearable 47°? Unlike humans, dogs can’t sweat through their skin, and they can overheat incredibly quickly so NEVER leave dogs in a hot car, even for a few minutes.

4) USE THE FLOOR
If you have a tiled or slate floor, make some room for your snoozing pets. Cats, dogs, even rabbits and guinea pigs will appreciate having something cool to lie on. Make it an even better space to ‘chill’ in by adding an electric fan to circulate cool air during those long Summer days!

5) HOW TO SPOT HEAT EXPOSURE

Panting in hot weather is normal, but there are 5 symptoms you should never ignore if your pet has been exposed to the heat. Contact us immediately if your pet shows any of the following signs:
– Drooling*
– A rapid pulse or heartbeat*
– Excessive lethargy
– Lack of co-ordination
– Vomiting or diarrhoea

*Please be aware that those symptoms could be normal if your pet is or has been doing exercise. If you’re unsure, please contact us for advice.
