The weather’s warming up, great for us but not so much for our dogs. Dogs are unable to cool down like we do and can easily overheat, which can be deadly. Its tempting to run them on the beach etc with us but it’s not ideal; take walks early morning before the temperature soars or late evening when it’s cooling off. NEVER leave your dog in a hot car it can take less than half an hour for them to succumb to heat – whatever the outside temperature it will be higher in the car even with the windows open.
If your dog overheats take them inside away from the heat, give them cool water to drink, help lower their temperature by applying cool water to their coats and call the Vet immediately for help. 01308 862312.
