At Petplan we have discovered that a third of pet owners don’t feel confident identifying the signs of heat stroke in their pets, or know how extreme hot weather means they should change their pet’s routine. That’s why we have worked with vet Brian Faulkner to create the ultimate guide to looking after cats and dogs in hot weather. So if you’re unsure how to keep a dog cool, or what temperatures are dangerous for pets we’re here to help.
