Summer brings with it the heatwaves that we need to cope with.  When it’s especially hot outside, we change our habits to acclimatise to the weather, how about your pets?

Keep Pets Indoors - We all know it’s dangerous to have your pets in the sweltering heat of Summer.  Cars heat up quickly so plan to leave your fur-babies at home in the cooler temperatures whilst you are out.  When they go outside be sure to have them on a lead, as it is easy for dogs to become disorientated in hotter temperatures.

You might think it is unlikely that the switch to daylight savings time could throw your cat or dog’s busy schedule - eat, sleep, eat, sleep – off kilter. 

But as it turns out, some animals are so in tune with their owners’ schedules, that the one-hour, clock forward, can cause some confusion.

Just like humans, animals have an internal clock that tells them when to eat, sleep and wake up.  Humans/Owners set their pets’ routines, e.g. your dog is accustomed to walking or being fed at a particular time of day, according to the clock. By changing this, the animal becomes confused.
