With the weather heating up here in New Zealand, it's time to talk Summer Safety for our pooches. As fur baby parents we love to have fun in the sun with them, but how to we do that without risking their health? Here's some tips to help keep your pet comfortable, safe and carefree this summer.
Just like us, our pets love the sun, but too much time in the sun can overheat them, particularly those pooches with shorter noses like Pugs, Boston Terriers and Bulldogs. Not to mention if our pets are overweight or have thicker darker coats, they too are at greater risk. Our pets tend to enjoy themselves a little too much and don't take the time to cool down in the shade or re-hydrate. So how do we safely cool, and keep them cool as well as hydrated?
