Digestive upsets are a common summer issue for pets
In the recent weeks of warm, sunny weather, the media has been effective at getting the message out about protecting pets from excessive heat. Radio talk shows, daytime television programmes and newspapers have all shared the need to prevent heat stroke in dogs. There have even been radio adverts warning dog owners not to leave their pets unattended in cars, even if the car is in the shade and the windows are open (thank you, Skoda). The warnings have been clearly transmitted, and nobody now could plead ignorance if they were found to be neglecting their dog by letting them overheat like this.
