Keep Your Pets Indoors In This Terrible Heat

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.

Show Little Kindness Towards Animals

This is the time for scorching heat hitting in our Country Pakistan. Though, the whole globe is going through sudden and abrupt weather changes. As we get agitated and fall sick due to dehydration, similarly the poor animals also fall sick.

It is a request to everyone to please place a bowl of water outside area for the birds to drink. They also need water and they can also have heat stroke.

Last year, cases of heat stroke in birds were reported. Let’s show some kindness towards the animal kingdom.

Alert For Heat Wave!

It is therefore requested to all of you to please place a clean water bowl in your Varenda, Patio, Garden or whatever outer place you’ve got so that the Animals can drink water. If we can feel hot so can they and the risk of having a heat stroke is for all the Mankind.

If you have an indoor pet then make sure to that your pet either has a cooling pad or a cool place where he can sit. Similarly goes for the cat. During the heat, plenty of animals do a lot of panting as for grasping air and as they are feeling damn hot. Please note that not all panting involves around regular breathing, you can read our previous post on Summers and their effects. Even birds as they fly at a higher altitude, the wind blows tends to get cooler but with the passage of temperature and latitude the wind blows gets warmer and warmer as the birds fly a bit low.

Kindly be kind to the animals and remember them in your daily routine. They might not be able to speak but they do say a little prayer for every kindness you offer.
