With this in mind, the ISPCA have issued some safety tips and tricks for pet owners to keep their animals save over the coming days.
ISPCA Public Relations Manager Carmel Murray said: “We all love the summer sunshine, but please plan in advance if you are bringing your pet anywhere with you in hot weather ensuring they won’t be left in a hot car for any length of time.
“Avoid walking your dog during intense heat, early morning or evening walks is always best when it’s cooler. If the pavement is too hot for your hand, it’s too hot for their paws. Always have fresh cool water available and access to shade from the sun”.
