The Isle of Wight NHS Trust has issued some top tips for beating the heat this August as local forecasters issue another Level 5 heat alert for the Isle of Wight.

34c is expected in central and northwestern parts of the Island on Tuesday, with the mercury sitting at anywhere between 26-34c elsewhere.

Tomorrow will be a bright day with sunny spells, broken cloud and a continuing risk of the odd scattered shower. It will feel hotter across the Island than today with even coastal regions feeling the heat to some extent. The wind will be 5-10mph NE becoming SE.

fatnip, You really must take you dog to the Vet for treatment. Fleas will drive it wild in this heat, and it could end up biting someone if it becomes too distressed.
 
As for the bedding, it must be boil washed as you may have them in your bed too.
 
Never let the dog sleep on your bedding. It sound rather a grim situation for you both at present.

Are you drunk? I feel sorry for your poor dog!
