How to keep your cat cool

Now the warmer weather has arrived your cat may be looking a little hot and bothered.
A recent survey from the British Veterinary Association (BVA) showed that nearly half of vets questioned treated animals for conditions related to hot weather, such as heat stroke, last summer. It’s therefore vitally important that you take extra care to keep your cat healthy and happy in the sunshine.

Cats are clever and will limit their activity to keep cool, but here are some ways you can help to prevent your cat from overheating and to keep them hydrated.

Consult your vet for advice if your cat is elderly, a kitten or in poor health. You should immediately get advice from a vet if you are concerned that your cat is suffering from a heat-related condition.
