Antoine Chabassol at Pawsomebox, a gift box subscription service for dogs, provides some top tips on how to make sure your pets stay safe in the summer months.

"When leaving your pets at home for the day please leave out a substantial number of water bowls on the floor to make sure your furry friend has a refreshing drink.

"If you're going out with your pet in tow, take portable water bowls and bottles of water with you to ensure that you can give them regular drinks. We have included these in our boxes before and find they are very popular with our customers due to their useful functionality.

"If you have a dog, don't choose to walk them in the midday sun, take them out early morning or late evening as pavements can get very hot during the day which can be painful for animals to walk on.

"For pets that are kept in a cage, ensure that they have plenty of water and shade and be extra vigilant at keeping their environment clean as the warmer weather increases the risk of potentially fatal health conditions.

"Finally, never ever leave your pet in a car as the risk of heat stroke is extremely high and can have devastating consequences."
