Keeping your pets cool

Remember to keep your feathered and furry friends cool during hot weather, and watch for signs of overheating, which can include heavy panting and drooling, glazed eyes, vomiting, weakness, collapse and seizures.
A few things you can do to keep pets cool in warmer weather:
  • Always leave fresh, clean water out
  • Ensure there is adequate shade
  • Never leave pets alone in a car, or on a ute
  • Keep pets indoors whenever possible
  • Consider cooling mats, collars, kennels and shallow pools
  • Make kibble ice blocks
