Four ways to keep your pets cool in the heat

Four ways to keep your pets cool in the heat

Fetch.co.uk provide their top tips to help keep pets cool this summer

The hot weather comes with warnings reminding us to apply sunscreen, stay hydrated and only exercise outdoors during the cooler parts of the day. But what about our pets? Fetch.co.uk, the online pet store from Ocado, has pulled together a quick and handy guide to help you protect your furry friends as temperatures soar.

  1. Choose the right spot for your pets

Keep your pets in cool shaded places as much as you can and never leave them in the car unattended. If you must exercise your pet during the day then walk them on grass and avoid hot tarmac.

  1. Groom your pets regularly to get rid of any excess hair

In this heat that extra hair will only be increasing your pet’s body temperature. Fetch’s range of Furminator products make removing excess hair easy peasy.

  1. Keep your pets hydrated at all times

It sounds obvious but it’s crucial to remember whether you’re at home or out and about that your pet needs access to a fresh supply of water. The Drinkwell Pet Fountain (£26.99) keeps water fresh by filtering and moving it continuously, enticing your pet to drink more in the hot weather. The Animal Instinct Travel Water Bottle (RRP: £2.29 – £2.99) is the perfect way to ensure your pet stays hydrated on the go.

  1. Give your pets the tools to keep cool

The best way to help your pets forget about the heat is to keep them entertained. Find your pet a cool place in the shade with some toys to chew and they’ll be happy. Fetch.co.uk has a wide range of fun toys to keep your pets entertained all day long :

  • The Hugs Hydro Ball (£7.99) will give your pet something chew and keep them cool at the same time. All you have to do is soak the hydro bone in water, which will then be released through the ball’s holes as your dog chews and plays.
  • The Fat Cat Kitty Beach Ball (RRP: £9.99) allows cats to travel to their own paradise island without leaving the house. The Fat Cat Kitty Beach Ball is perfect for scratching, playing and saving your new summer garden furniture.
  • West Paw Design Zogoflex Jive Large Green (RRP: £15.45 – £16.30) is a super-durable dog ball that will keep your four legged friend entertained all day long.

Angela Rodger, resident vet at fetch.co.uk commented:

“Your pets can’t cool themselves as easily as we can in the heat and therefore they are at higher risk of heatstroke. By the time the signs of heatstroke become apparent, the damage can already be done. Go easy on the exercise on hot days, and make sure your pet has plenty of water and shade.”
