Prevent Heat Stress in Dogs
– Make sure your dog has access to clean water at all times, ideally a large bowl filled to the brim.
– Carry water and a bowl with you on all walks – whether to the park or around the block.
– On hot days, walk your dog during the cooler parts of the day, in the early morning and late evening
– Watch your pet for signs of over-heating, including heavy panting and loss of energy. If you recognise these signs when on a walk, stop, find a shady spot and give your dog water.
– Never leave your dog (or any pet) alone in a car, even with the windows open
– Make cooling tasty treats by making ice cubes with your dog’s favourite food inside or stuff a Kong and pop it in the freezer
– Be particularly careful with short nosed dogs such as bull breeds, boxers, pugs, older dogs, and those that are overweight.
– These dogs can get heatstroke simply by running around – keep a fan handy in the room that your flat nosed pet sleeps in to help with evaporation from all their panting!
