These Wild Caps feature fun and quirky animal designs and are for those who are prepared to make a statement. Check out the pics then take a look at the full range.

I've seen some cool hats in my time, but these would have to be right up there. Plus, did you know that malc&andi donate money from every sale they make to animal charities?? That's gotta be worth a "like" on their Facebook page, hint hint ;)

Two words. Cool Coats. They are amazing, there's different ones from your cat to your horse, one to suit almost any four legged critter! They work especially well inside with the air con, double the chill, double the happiness! They create artificial perspiration that actively pulls excess heat from your pet, lowering the animal's temperature and reducing the heavy panting that would otherwise unduly distress him or her. happy) They can seem expensive at first, but are worth the investment. You can also get cool mats which is like a cool bed of happiness! happy

My tip is to make sure animals that are confined to cages like guinea pigs and rabbits are placed in fully shaded breezy areas when outdoors with plenty of fresh water rabbit

Disolve vegemite in some hot water and then freeze it. My dogs love to lick their vegemite iceblocks in summer! Keeps them cool and a tasty treat!

Dig a wide hole in a shady area of your backyard, just large and deep enough (not too deep) for your dog to rest and resort to when it gets hot. The soil will remain nice and cool for the dog all day long.  happy

Build good relationships with neighbours, especially ones that are home while you are out to work - they can check on your fur-friends during the hottest part of the day.  Even if its just putting the hose over the fence to cool a shaded area of pavers or concrete.  Dogs may play in the water stream, while guinea pigs, rabbits and chickens will enjoy the relief of water around the enclosures.

What's one tip you can give to help animals beat the heat this summer??

If you live in the 'burbs with a well planted yard, encourage birds to cool off by providing them with ample bird baths that are preferably located in shady areas. Maybe you could clip a dish on the side and pop in a few frozen fruit cubes, if you know you have nectar eaters frequent your bird bath!

What a way to care for wildlife without them having to be entirely dependent on you!

It's winter in Norway where I live now, but in the summer I like to put on the sprinklers for my dogs when I have to stay home and work, and when I have some days off I usually bring them down to my cottage by the water so they can play and swim in it all they want!love

I wet sarongs and put them on my dog Koji and cat vish then they plonk themselves in front of the fan and for my Childrens Python, Monty (yes reptiles can get overheated too!) I keep topping up his water with cool water and he sits in it - no ice or cold water, as it can shock them and stress them out.

Never forget that if you are feeling the heat, your dog is feeling it five times more! Don't let the heat make you lazy in caring for them.

Make sure your dog has somewhere nice and cool to hang out, somewhere with a nice breeze, and keep their water in a cool spot too. My dog chooses being inside the house of course... he's such cheeky little monkey  monkey but we love him so much.

Consider the heat when deciding whether to take the dog for a walk or not; she is black, has no shoes, and feels it more than I do.

What you can do if you have pets such as guinea pig, rabbits and any other small rodents is fill up a soft drink bottle with water and freeze it. The next day bring it out and put it in their hutch. They love it.  clap

Wrap frozen peas or frozen water in a plastic bottle and place it in your pet's bedding, great for little pets, like rats & guinea pigs and for big pets, like dogs and cats.

Cheers,

Make your beloved pooches a frozen water treat using treats, kibble, meat pieces or dollops of vegemite or peanut butter suspended in frozen water. It'll be sure to keep them occupied & happy whilst being refreshed & cooled this summer!!

I freeze ice cream containers of water and put them in water buckets and bowls all over the garden.  We have chooks too and leave ice water for them as well.  My budgie likes to be sprayed with water and have a bit of a bath too, then runs around his (large) cage licking the water droplets off everything.
