Hena’s Blog For Paws covers everything that you need to know Animals and their Characteristics. All the articles cover about how would it be to have them as a Pet and how to deal with day to day care in assurance with the right method of training and discipling your Pet.
It’s really a bad weather, too much heat, such a scorching sun which can also burn your feet if you walk bare foot on the road, the way you feel warm and sick, similarly, the animals feel the same thirst, hunger and heat.
Therefore, it is requested to you to keep a clean water bowl out in the patio, rooftop, gallery or garden for the Animals as they might feel thirsty and would in return wish well for you.
A little kindness towards anyone or anything, would bring so much happiness to you that you wouldn’t even know!
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.
It is really sad to say that many pet owners have lost their pet during this killing weather of Summers, where heatwave made life miserable for Humans and Animals both.
Today my friend called and gave me a devastating news of how his beautiful persian cats couldn’t survive this heat and left him the early hours of the day. It was really saddening, but we did the best we could to save the poor souls but the heat was pretty crude on these babies. It is easy to play the blame game, but really difficult enough to be there at the time when going through such a hard time. It isn’t easy to watch your pet die while you hold to comfort her. It isn’t.
Those who have pets please keep them save and under roof with clean water bowl beside them.
It is reported that this year the weather has been very harsh and people along with animals have not been able to bear the heat despite of the air-conditioners switched on during the day and night. One of the reasons that there have been volunteers who have stepped forward in becoming a foster for these adorable stray animals which gains the attention to many Karachiites.
One good deed can make a big difference in our society and within ourselves.
The weather has been pretty warm in south asia and it is going to be bit worse. As it is hard for us to stand under the sun similarly, the animals on land and skies face the same trouble.
Be courteous amongst the ones who need our help. Just place a clean water bowl and earn great rewards. As it is said “Every life counts, and every living being deserves to live”. Be kind and courteous this summer.
