A Dog's Life with Anna Webb

We’re joined by Anna Ewers-Clark, lead Vet at The Blue Cross,  chatting about the dangers of the hot weather. Every season has its pros and cons for dogs, and in Summer the extra daylight hours give us more time to walk your dog, but it's also a time when a walk in the park can turn into a vet emergency. We discuss why dogs overheat so easily, and what signs owners should be aware of to spot in time to prevent an urgent trip to the vets. We discuss why young and older dogs are more susceptible. Why the flat faced breeds find the heat very difficult, and why darker coated dogs absorb the rays faster than paler coated dogs. And all the tips to keep your home and garden cool and the fun games to play indoors and out when it's hot. Not forgetting how to ensure smooth, cool travel for dogs in the car, and why you should never leave a dog in a stationary vehicle even in the shade on a hot day.

What is A Dog's Life with Anna Webb?


They’re companions, guardians, and much much more – they complete us. And they just might save us from ourselves.

Anna Webb explores all levels of modern dog ownership and brings to life why every dog is extraordinary.

She speaks to scientists and experts - people who have and are changing our understanding of dogs - on everything from emotional intelligence to nutrition to behaviour, delving deep into subjects like homeopathy, telepathic communication and the pet food scandal.

It's thought provoking, alternative, and not a little subversive.
