Our dogs can't regulate their body temperatures in the same way that us humans do. We would always recommend reducing your usual exercise regime on very hot days and consider walking your dog in the early morning or evening, when it's much cooler. It only takes an increase of 2 degrees in your dog's body temperature for heat stroke to kick in. Do you know the signs?
- Excessive and rapid panting
- Tired, sluggish and unwilling to move around
- Drooling and reddened gums
- Vomiting and Diarrhoea
and contact your vet immediately.
It’s Tick Time for Dogs! So time to prepare….
These nasty little things can carry lots of diseases that are harmful to both dogs and humans; so whilst a tick is very common they should not be overlooked. As a doggy parent, you must take action.
