How do we take care of labrador puppies in such a hot climate in chennai and what food to keep them healthy?
Chennai is very burning hot these days and i have two labrador puppies with me. What should i do to keep them away from this heat and what food should t give to keep them healthy and strong? I also want to take them to my home town by train from chennai to guwahati. What are the safety measures needed to take while travelling by train.
to keep them cool: water with ice cubes.
also lot of dogs like chewing on ice cubes.
when traveling try to make sure they have water, in a bottle that attaches to their kennel (i'm not sure what you are transporting them in) and also if you get a few hot water bottles but keep cold water in it, it will keep the water chill and they can lay on it or next to it if they get warm.
Give them lot of water , i think that would be enought to keep them healthy and stronger , try to keep the puppies in a cool place like under the fan or cooler ..
there are lot of things to be considered for the travel as it would be a long journey(chennai to Guwahati ) , first of all i dont think u would be allowed to take it in passengers compartment ,u would have to keep it with the luggages .. which is not so recomendable for the pups .. a proper cage .. it needs to let out its waste too . you need to feed it at the right time too -- better leave it in creche for dogs ..
i have heard of cool packs for dogs. google it see if you can find any near you.when traveling make sure they have water. when we travel by car i freeze a few bottles of water and as it melts they drink it from the bottle, nothing beats freash ice water when your hot. I don't know how far the trip is (lenght of time) so I can't give any tips there. sry.as for food find something where meat is the first few indegrents. no corn and as little filler as you can afford.
I have also three Labrador.This tipes of dogs hates hot climate.you always try to keep them in cold room.And you also give them pedigree.This is a very healthy food those doges.OK buy.
