Please be careful in this hot summer weather. We have had a few dogs presented with heat stroke recently. These animals have not been kept inside cars but rather undergone normal exercise in the sunshine. Please be aware, aim to walk dogs in the cooler hours of the day and always carry water. Never leave a dog in a confined place such as a car.
