Don’t forget to pay particular close attention to your smaller domestic pets during the warm weather.

Hamsters and other caged pets should be moved away from windows where the sun may get strong during the course of the day. Rabbits should be checked twice daily for fly strike. Fly strike (maggot infestation) happens quickly and catching it early can make all the difference. Check beneath the tail especially for small white/cream clumps. These are fly eggs and in the heat, they will quickly develop into maggots. Of course, provide plenty of shade and fresh drinking water for all pets.
