Every year our Country face terrible heat waves, it may be a bit different this year as heat wave hasn’t been witnessed but yes the summers are here and it’s pretty humid making the climate pretty warm as if living in a volcano. We have been telling everyone to keep their pets safe and indoors during these hot weather days, since it also gets warmer for them to stay outdoor, yet there have been multiple cases of dogs and cats being found unattended in their out yard in the heat. What makes us a bit worried is that people often forget that Animals also can sense cold and hot weather, they can suffer both weathers to the worst. Therefore it is always pleaded and requested that to keep pets safe and indoors no matter what time of the day or night it is.
How can you take care of your Pet Dogs, scroll down below to find out:
1- Keep your pets indoors;
2- Keep them hydrated by placing clean cool (mix) water in a bowl;
3- Preferably give them liquified milk, means by mixing 1/2cup of milk with 1cup of water;
4- Make sure they are bathed often specially in summers.
It is not always recommended to get your Pets hair shaved as their hair acts like a coverage for being exposed to heat. The hair prevents their skin against sun burns and being heat stroked. So make sure you visit your Pet’s vet for the advise as usually it is not recommended, specially when we talk about Asia. There are Hairy dogs or the breeds which are meant for cooler place but eventually people (who are able to afford) buy such breeds and keep them as a pet. Then they have to cater to their needs as is they are high maintenance Breeds. Recently someone approached me to have a word regarding buying Siberian Husky for Pakistan. Before he went on, I simply asked him “Would you be able to provide him the weather that this Breed needs?”, he replied “It’s just a dog and I’ll keep him in a cage”. His reply didn’t shock me because I was expecting such a weird reply from someone who must be having a lot of money but no sense on how to use that money on that Breed. Sad. This behaviour makes my blood boil because how can one think so small. Isn’t a Dog a living being? Isn’t he suppose to be respected as a living being, this land is equally meant for Animals just like Humans.
When will this behaviour stop and when will our Government put an end to Animal Abuse and Cruelty at all levels. It is time that we start using Social Media for the right purpose.
