Keep animals cool in hot weather

With the recent arrival of hot weather, we should be reminded that animals suffer and die when temperatures rise. Dogs die very quickly in hot cars and they should not be left inside them even for very short periods. Opening a window a few inches is not sufficient.

It’s not just dogs who suffer in heatwaves. We offer advice on caring for rabbits, smaller animals and wildlife.
