Keep your dogs safe this summer

They’re asking people to be extra vigilant this summer after lots of residents flocked to the beach town to enjoy the hot weather.

They’re asking people to be extra vigilant this summer after lots of residents flocked to the beach town to enjoy the hot weather. Dogs can be very susceptible to heatstroke which can be extremely dangerous.

Some are more vulnerable than other: flat faced, short muzzled, seniors, puppies, sick, overweight and thick coated dogs carry a higher risk.

Some of the symptoms you should look out for: excessive panting, body temperature 104-110, bright red tongue/gums/ears, weakness, fainting, vomiting, diarrhoea and rapid heartbeat.

If you think your dog has developed heatstroke you have to cool them down as quickly as possible.

You shouldn’t force your dog to drink, hose them down or cover them in water-soaked towels and contact your vet immediately.
