Although we all enjoy the sun, it’s important that we keep our pets as cool, comfortable and well hydrated as possible.

The high performance Easidri Cooling Coat is a real must have for the summer months. The Cooling Coat is made from a super absorbent fabric with a unique cell structure, which cools the dog by releasing the absorbed moisture, without causing their fur to become wet. Reusable and machine washable.
If you’d prefer not to use a coat the Easidri Cooling Mat is a perfect alternative, whether for placing on your car seat or using as a bed while out and about. Made with a food-grade gel filling and waterproof outer, this is a fuss free way to keep your dog cool.
Summer Dog Care
While we’re enjoying soaking up the sun it’s easy to forget our canine friends can be at risk of heat related illnesses and injuries.
Please remember these top tips for keeping your dog comfortable in hot weather;
- Do not leave your dog in a hot car, outbuilding or caravan as temperatures can quickly rise to in excess of 47°C
- Keep travel times as short as possible
- Use petsafe sun cream on exposed parts of your dogs skin
- Always give access to shade and drinking water
- Do not walk your dog on surfaces which are too hot for you to comfortably hold your hand on
Please also keep an eye out for signs of heat stroke, these include panting heavily, drooling excessively, lethargy, drowsiness, poor coordination, vomiting and collapse. If your dog is showing any of these symptoms it is advised that they are moved to a cool, shaded area and a vet is called immediately. Click here for more information from the RSPCA.
