Whereas us humans may be enjoying this hot weather, our four-legged friends may not be so keen.

And while we may want to bask in the sun, heat is not so good for dogs or cats.

For those wanting to keep their dogs and cats cool, budget retailer Aldi is once again selling its popular cooling mat.

Priced from £4.99, the mats are part of a range of new pet accessories launched by the store as part of its Special Buys range.

The mats are in store now.

Due to their popularity thanks to the ongoing hot weather, stocks have been snapped up online and have now sold out.

It is not known when they will be back in stock, but some stores have them on the shelves and animal lovers should check for availability.

The mats, which come in a range of designs such as a watermelon or a lemon round mat can be wiped down easily.

And they don’t even require freezing.

Aldi is also selling cooling dog toys, which are sold in a set of three for £7.47.

Some other items include cooling pet bowls for £2.99 each and a spotted luxury pet bed bundle that costs £18.99.

There are lots of other things you can do to help your dog cool down on hot summer days.

Here are some tips from the PDSA.

  • Keep hydrated. It’s important that your dog drinks enough in hot weather so they don’t get dehydrated.
  • Stick to the shade. Does your dog love to spend time in the garden? Make sure they have a shady spot to lounge in. Trees and shrubs create natural shade but you can also hang a tarpaulin or put up a gazebo to give your dog somewhere cool to mooch about.
  • A paddling pool for paws. A shallow paddling pool or washing up bowl filled with cool water can give your dog a chance to cool off their paws. Keep a close eye on them around water to make sure they’re safe.
  • Create a cool room. Some dogs will seek out a tiled floor on hot days as they’re nice and cool to lie down on. You could also set up a fan for them or an area with some cool, damp towels for your dog to lie on.
  • Ice packs and cool pads. You may be able to buy cooling beds and mats from your local pet shop for your dog to lie on. If you can’t find them, an alternative is to wrap ice packs in a towel and pop that in your dog’s bed to cool it down.
