WHEN Aggie’s family moved to Malaga, in the first few weeks she ate less and drank more than she did in England.
They moved to Nerja in the month of May. It had been a very warm Spring that year and Aggie stayed indoors a lot and slept most of the day.
The children thought she was missing England and they all became concerned when she started to lose weight and her ribs began to show. So they took Aggie to meet her new local vet in Nerja who advised to:
1. Help her stay cool during the day, keep water fresh.
2. Let her sleep at night in the house where there’s air con.
3. Improve her chances of eating by serving her food earlier in the day when it’s cooler but not first thing in the morning and not late afternoon after her walk like the usual routine.
Within days she was eating more and appeared more acclimatised. Just in time, as the family had a short holiday planned. They had organised a pet-sitter from HouseSitMatch and gave clear instructions on the new routine and to contact the vet should Aggie stop eating. They had a great holiday and Aggie relaxed at home with the sitter.
