Helping Animals Survive the European Heatwave

As a sweltering European heatwave blankets the continent, protecting  ourselves and ensuring the safety and well-being of the animals in our  care becomes crucial.

Extreme heat can be just as detrimental to animals as to humans, leading  to heat stress, dehydration, and other severe health complications.

Heatwaves pose significant risks to animals due to their limited ability to regulate body temperature.

Unlike humans, many animals lack efficient cooling mechanisms that can perspire to cool down.

The scorching temperatures can push their physiological limits, leading to heat exhaustion and heatstroke.

Additionally, animals may face challenges finding suitable shelter and  sufficient water sources, exacerbating the heat’s detrimental effects.
