Kiddie pools and water play
Playing in water can help reduce your pet’s body temperature in the summer heat. A day at the bench can help them cool off while frolicking in the waves, fetching floating toys, or simply wading in the shallows. Remember to bring fresh drinking water, sunscreen and supervise your furry friend.
Alternatively, setting up a kiddie pool in a shady spot or turning on the backyard sprinklers can also be a fun way for your pet to cool off and have some water play right at home.
Vet tip: Pets can get sunburnt just like us! When they’re enjoying the outdoors, apply pet-safe sunscreen generously, paying particular attention to the vulnerable areas of their bodies, such as their nose, belly, and the tips of their ears.
