TweetFacebookReminder that pets feel the heat tooMeanwhile McIvor Road Veterinary Centre owner Sue Collinssaid it was important to look after pets during hot weather.

“Like humans, young and elderly animals needed to be looked after,” she said.

But DrCollins saiddog-owners needed to be especially vigilant.

“The only way they can cool down is by panting. Sothey are quite susceptible to heatstroke,” she said.

“Many dogs also have a silly streak in them, so they are more likely to stay active in the sun.”

Dr Collinssaid dogs needed adequate shade and a water bowl they could not knock over. She strongly recommended people buy children’s plastic wading pools because they arebig enough for dogs to lie in.

However, she said the amount of dogs sent to her practice because of heatstroke had dropped in recent years.

“In2009 we saw a number of dogs drop dead because of a heatwave. Since then there’s been a lot more awareness about how animals handle the heat,” Dr Collins said.

“What we now see is that heatstroke is more likely when an animal is exposed tounusual conditions.

“For example a common reason for dogs coming to our clinic with heatstroke is that people have underestimated the heat and taken the dog for a walk.

“If you stick your nose outside and think‘gee, it’s hot’, it’s probably too hot to walk the dog.”

Dr Collins said it was usually obvious when dogs suffered from heat stroke. If a dog is breathingheavily,acting dazedand stumbling it istime to take action.

“Bathe them in cool water, put them in front of a fan (while still wet) and then get them to a vet as soon as possible,” she said.

Dr Collinsadded that birdsneeded to be kept inside on hot days.

Their small size can stop their bodies cooling down properly.
