Please take heed folks. We’ve just had a dog in today that got heatstroke from walking a short distance to the shops. It doesn’t take much and particularly with:
– Overweight dogs.
– Elderly dogs.
– Certain breed conformations such as Pugs and Bulldogs.
– Overly energetic dogs such as Springers.
– Dogs with existing Cardiac or Respiratory disease.
Many people still tell us they “walk their dog in the evening” but it often isn’t that much cooler and most of our pets just are not used to this heat.
If you are in DOUBT then don’t go OUT!
