• Provide shade: pets and livestock will experience discomfort
and physical stress from overheating unless shade is provided
on sunny days.
• A reliable supply of clean drinking water is also essential.
Many animals evaporate water to lose heat, so they need to
drink water frequently in hot weather. Lactating animals have
especially high requirements for water.
• Horses can become extremely uncomfortable and suffer
heat stress when winter covers are left on them in summer.
They sweat to lose heat and rapidly become wet under a heavy
cover. Only the lightest porous horse covers should be used in
• Parked cars overheat very quickly. Dogs can suffer heat
stress within 15 minutes in a closed car, and die rapidly. If you
see a panting dog in a hot car call the SPCA right away.
• With Christmas approaching some people may be
considering giving a pet for Christmas. Consider the long-term
consequences (a daily time commitment and costs with food,
vets, desexing, boarding, etc.). Also remember that the SPCA
may have the ideal animal waiting there for you to adopt- the
facility is usually overwhelmed with animals at Christmas time.
• Holiday time can be traumatic and risky for pets, so consider
taking them with you. There are motels and camping grounds
which are pet-friendly.
• If you have to leave pets behind when you go on holiday
ensure you have a capable, reliable person providing daily care
(food, water, exercise and human company). Always leave your
caretaker with contact numbers for you and your veterinarian.
It is also best to advise neighbours or the SPCA that your pet is
being cared for (neighbours often ring the SPCA during holiday
time with concerns for apparently abandoned animals, which
are in fact being cared for).
• If you intend to board your pet, choose a facility that is:
· appropriately heated or cooled
· provides reliable, clean water
· has a warm, comfortable resting area in a sensible place
· provides suitable food for your pet (or take your own) and
preferably also meaty bones, chews or toys for entertainment
· provides exercise
• When you take your pet to a boarding facility remember to
take its bedding, toys and vaccination certificate.
• Finally, most animals appreciate the chance to sun
themselves so bear this in mind when positioning ponds,
aviaries, kennels and cages- animals should be free to move
from shade to sun and vice versa to help them maintain a
comfortable temperature. Ensure that your animals can enjoy
whatever good weather summer brings!
