Motion text

That this House notes the effect that heat can have on beloved pets and encourages the public to follow the RSPCA's advice by limiting or skipping walks, only taking very essential car journeys, making water available at all times, and preparing damp, cold towels and mats and frozen treats; further highlights that early morning or late night walks where safe to do so are preferable; and urges pet owners to take every precaution to help their pet through this difficult and confusing time for animals unused to heat and changes to their routines.
