Dogs and Hot Weather
We are experiencing very unusual hot temperatures at present. We would ask dog owners to be vigilant at this time. Large dog breeds are perhaps more beneficially exercised early in the morning or later in the evening. Smaller breeds too can suffer. A great percentage of dogs though like nothing better than cooling off in the water. It is perhaps better not to leave your dog in a car for any length of time. Whatever the situation, please remember to leave plenty of ventilation, available fresh water and if possible, the vehicle parked in the shade. In home situations, all dogs need plentiful supplies of fresh water and the availability of shade. Don’t forget to share the suncream with those dogs whose pink noses need protection!!!
