RSPCA warns about risks of heat for our furry friends

WITH temperatures soaring, the RSPCA are warning pet owners to make sure their furry friends have enough shade and water throughout the day.

RSPCA regional inspector Natalie Aitken said pet owners should never leave animals in hot cars.

She said it only took six minutes for heat to overwhelm animals, with several dogs dying in Rockhampton recently after being left alone in cars.

Dogs should have plenty of water as well as copious amounts of shade during summer.
