Blue-green algae warning

Posted by Jill on July 30, 2018 at 7:10 PM Comments comments (0)

Blue-green algae is most common in lakes and fresh water ponds and can be worse in hot weather when there is little rain to disperse it. Toxins from blue-green algae can seriously affect a dog's liver function and can have long term damage or be fatal.

The symptons to watch for are vomiting, diarrohoea, drooling, weakness, collapse, disorientation, fitting, seizures, difficulty breathing.

To keep your dog safe from this, please look out for blue green algae in any water before letting your dog drink or swim in it - it is usually more oncentrated around the edge of a pool, which is usually where your dog would drink from.

Be aware of hot pavements

Posted by Jill on July 4, 2018 at 8:35 AM Comments comments (0)

In the current heatwave please think about the fact that your dog's paws can be burnt on hot pavements. A simple test is try standing on the pavement in your bare feet or use the back of your hand - if the pavement is hot then don't walk your dog on it.

Another surface to take care is on artificial grass. As this is plastic / nylon it retains the heat, so if it feels hot to your touch, it will also be hot for your dog if walking on it.

Keep an eye on their paws and walk them in cooler parts of the day.
