The heat of summer has given us all a hammering. But for the hairiest members of the family, this season can well and truly hit them for six. So here’s a tip that will give them relief and maybe even return them to the little hell-raiser we know and love.
Pets feel the heat well before you do. In fact, they’re struggling well before you see your friend’s car temperature readings on instagram. Yes it’s that quick. But if you notice they’re quieter than usual, panting uncontrollably or shedding huge amounts of hair then it’s time to take the stress out of their summer.
Aside from the thick hair coat, our pets struggle with heat because they don’t sweat like we do. So why not do the sweating for them. Here’s how you do it… - Grab a simple water spray bottle and fill it with water - Place this bottle in the fridge - Once the water is cool, give them a light misting on their belly, feet and underarms. These areas have a great blood supply so will help to cool their body down even faster.
When Nam was younger he worked on the streets of Hanoi, shining shoes to help support his family. However things changed when he joined the Step Ahead program which provides shelter, meals and vocational training opportunities to street kids. In partnership with Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation, World Vision helped enrol Nam in a cooking course, which helped his passion and talent for cooking to thrive. He even got the chance to appear on a TV talent show, Iron Chef Vietnam – opening the door for his future career as the head chef at a popular restaurant. Now 27, Nam helps provide meals and teaches culinary skills to street kids, through the same project that once helped him.
