1. Identify Signs of Excessive Heat in Pets.

First, it's important to recognize the signs that your pet may be suffering from excessive heat. This may include rapid, shallow breathing, red gums, excessive hanging tongue, increased lethargy, and vomiting. If you notice these signs, it is crucial to act quickly to avoid potentially dangerous heat stroke. Brunette lady caressing her dog on a leash

2. Provide Shelter and Fresh Water.

Make sure your pet always has access to fresh, clean water . You can also create shaded areas in your garden where your pet can rest out of the sun . If you are planning a walk, choose times early in the morning or late in the afternoon, when the heat is less intense.

3. Use Cooling Pet Cushions.

Pet cooling pads are a modern and highly effective solution to help your companions stay cool during hot weather. Unlike other products available on the market which require refrigeration or which contain potentially toxic substances, our cushions use air circulation cooling technology. They do not require electrical connection or prior refrigeration. These cushions work by absorbing your pet's body heat and then dissipating it naturally , creating a comfortable space where they can rest in peace.

4. How to Use a Cooling Cushion.

  • Place the cushion in a cool, shaded location, preferably indoors or in an outdoor area protected from direct sunlight.
  • Encourage your pet to lie down or rest on the cushion. The cool surfaces of the pad will help regulate your pet's body temperature.
  • Monitor your pet's reaction to the pad. Some animals may need to get used to the new surface.

    5. Know the Heat Sensitive Breeds.

    Some pet breeds, such as Bulldogs, Pugs, Persians, and other animals with short noses, have more difficulty regulating their body temperature. They are more sensitive to heat and may need special care during hot days. Consult your veterinarian for specific advice on how to care for these breeds during periods of intense heat.


    Summer is a time of fun and relaxation, but it is essential to take steps to protect our pets from excess heat. By using simple methods such as shade, cool water and cooling pet cushions, you can ensure the comfort and well-being of your four-legged friends on hot days. Remember that vigilance is the key to preventing heat stroke in your pets. By caring for your pet responsibly, you can both make the most of the summer season.
