Keeping Your Pets Cool and Safe at Animal Land Children's Farm, Digger Rest During the Heatwave

As we brace ourselves for the scorching temperatures forecasted for Sunday and Monday, it's crucial to ensure the safety and comfort of our beloved pets. At Animal Land Children's Farm in Digger Rest, we're committed to helping pet owners navigate the challenges posed by this heatwave.

Keeping Your Pet Cool:

  • Hydration is Key: Ensure your pet has access to fresh, cool water throughout the day. Consider adding ice cubes to their water bowl for an extra chill.
  • Shade and Shelter: Provide ample shade and a cool retreat, either indoors with air conditioning or fans, or in a shaded outdoor area.
  • Cooling Aids: Consider using cooling mats or bandanas available at Animal Land to help regulate their body temperature.

Minimizing Stress:

  • Indoor Retreat: During the hottest part of the day, typically between midday and 4 pm, keep your pets indoors in a calm and quiet environment.
  • Limit Outdoor Activities: Avoid strenuous activity during peak heat times. Opt for early morning or late evening walks.
  • Sun Protection: For hairless animals, consider pet-safe sunscreen.

Responsible Pet Ownership:

  • Never Leave Pets Unattended: Especially outdoors during hot weather, and never in a parked car.
  • Monitor for Heatstroke: Watch for signs like excessive panting, drooling, lethargy, or vomiting, and seek veterinary attention if needed.

Fire Safety for Pets:

  • Prevent Accidental Fires: Keep pets away from stoves, candles, and space heaters. Consider flameless candles as a safer alternative.
  • Include Pets in Your Fire Safety Plan: Practice evacuating with your pets and ensure they have ID tags and microchips for easy identification.
  • Prepare for Emergencies: Have an emergency kit ready with your pet's supplies, and make sure your pet's hiding spots are easily accessible.

Animal Land is Here to Help!

Together, let's ensure our furry friends stay cool and safe during this heatwave!
