With the summer sun beating down upon us, more than ever it is important to keep safe in the rising temperatures.
For us, keeping cool is a simple task. We grab a cool glass of water or seek shade. But for our four-legged friends, sometimes the excitement of a happy family enjoying the glorious sunshine can make them overheat without them realising. For our pets, they simply cannot say “I’m too hot”, so keeping an eye on our pets, especially in warmer seasons, is of the upmost importance.
As the British weather become more and more appealing, many of us are planning days out with our furry friends. But how can we enjoy the sun whilst keeping our pets pawfectly cool? Well, we have the answer. At the Natural Cornish Pet Shop, we love making life easier, and doing what we can to help our fellow animal lovers. So as the temperatures rises, here’s our amazing ways to keep your pet cool this summer!
Fun with Water
Is there anything more fun than playing with water? We think not!
There is nothing more cooling for your pet than having fun with a little H20. Getting overexcited during playtime is a common occurrence with many of our furry friends – this mixed with heat – often results in our pets panting away with their tongues drooping out of their mouth. Often becoming too excited to think about drink, dogs can easily become dehydrated. Playing with water, can give you a sense a security that despite your pet’s giddiness to play, they have a fun access to hydration if needed!
