Beat the heat

Summer’s here, time for holidays, barbecue’s and the beach but let’s not forget our pet’s, let’s keep them cool and comfortable too.

Water – so very important. Make sure it’s clean and fresh and if your pet is outside place it out of the sun. Try a self filling water bowl too, that way you’ll know they won’t run out.

Shade – this is critical for the outdoor pet and if tethered, they have to be able to reach it.

Sunscreen –  many dogs have pale pink skin around their noses and eyes sunscreens are  available for animals whether it’s a horse, dog, cat, pig, goat, cow or sheep

Clipping – clipping the hair off for summer can make a big difference whether your pet has a long or short coat.

Don’t leave your pets in the car. DOGS DIE IN HOT CARS
