How do you know if your pet is not coping well with the heat? Look out for these warning signs:
Heavy Panting (most obvious sign)
*Increased pulse rate
*Standing still and/or looking anxious
*Their tongue or gums may become a bright pink or red
*Stumbling or disorientation
*Feel hot to the touch
Fitting, Vomiting and diarrhoea may occur
(this list is not exhaustive)

Here are just some things you can do to help your pet stay cool:
*Take extra care when exercising or avoid it if necessary – take advantage of cooler mornings / evenings and shade
*Always bring water with you for your pet
*Avoid long periods in direct sunlight
*Avoid hot pavements
*Staying in the car is a NO-NO!
*Don’t over do it – allow regular breaks

Has your dog lost his appetite, started vomiting or presenting severe bloody diarrhoea? If your dog is suffering from any of these symptoms you should take him to The Vet straight away! This could be very dangerous and a sign of parvovirus. Canine Parvovirus (also known as CPV) is a highly infectious disease that affects dogs. It spreads through bodily fluids such as dogs’ faeces and vomit. Parvo can also be spread on shoes, clothing and hands from humans. We've written a blog post to make you aware of the symptoms of parvo and how easy it can be caught by any dog that hasn’t been vaccinated. http://bit.ly/2qEiM42

Has your cat been itching, scratching or have you felt it seems lethargic lately? This could be a huge red flag of a flea infestation! Fleas are the most common external parasite of cats. They are nasty creatures that can cause your cat significant inconvenience. We've written a blog post to make you aware of the symptoms of fleas and avoid them this spring. http://ow.ly/Czle30jvPaS
