As temperatures rise, please remember top tips for keeping your pugs cool, comfortable & safe, potentially from heatstroke.

• Ensure your dog has constant access to fresh water and shade
• Walk them in the early morning or evening, avoiding the midday/afternoon heat
• Check that the pavement or artificial grass is not too hot for your hand, hence their paws also
• Skip walks if necessary, for older, overweight dogs or those with breathing issues
• Provide cool mats or jackets. Do not rely on fans alone to keep them cool
• Never leave them unattended in a car, even in the shade or with window ajar
• Know the signs of heatstroke and seek vet advice immediately if your dog shows any symptoms
