Love your pets. Keep them safe this summer

Just like people, your pets will feel the heat this summer, so it’s important you help them through those long hot days.

Make sure they always have access to plenty of fresh, clean water and a cool place to rest. Don’t leave animals unattended inside cars and provide matting in the back of utes so they don’t burn their feet.

Ensure that bird cages and fish tanks are kept in the shade with free air flow.

If you are going on holidays don’t leave your pet unattended and keep your cat or dog’s microchip details up-to-date so they can be returned to you if they become lost.
