Our “Waggy Tail” friends
In hot weather dogs in cars are always an issue. Most people have to take their dog in the car to the park or on trips. Everyone should be aware of the risk of heat stroke but I thought the following You Tube video helps to convey the risk of heat stroke very vividly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JbOcCQ-y3OY
Temperature Alarms, an interesting news piece I read,
“AnimAlarm has won the Innovative Product of the Year” launched at Crufts 2013 the alarm is a portable temperature warning system that allows owners to monitor the temperature in any environment. http://www.theanimalarm.com/
I have no personal experience of the product but the concept looks really useful for all our pets in different situations.
The other item which I think is really useful is the cool coat you can now buy for your dog to wear, there are a number of these on the market for you to look at. “Easidri” is one brand but again I have no person experience but they are worth investigating to help keep your dog cooler when out walking or in a stressful place and too warm, clients have given positive feed back.
Our “Cuddly” Felines
Cats are far more intelligent than dogs and usually seek the shade when it is hot but watch those crazy sun bathing ones and place some sun block cream on any ear tips and noses especially if white or pale coloured as cancer risk is much higher.
Make sure cats have access to lots of different water sources. Cats suffer from cystitis far more than dogs and drinking adequate water is really important.
Our “Furry” friends
It is really important to physically examine our rabbits every day and check their little bottoms fly Strike is a terrible thing and can be prevented. Use of Rear guard can be helpful and fly sticky paper or a vapona strip hung near by. But nothing replaces the act of checking them each day and cleaning them daily, if messy twice daily.
Adequate shade for rabbits and guinea pigs is important and giving them different sources of water and even if very hot a frozen bottle to lie near or over if they like.
Hope you have found a useful tip here.
