During extreme weather you might notice that your dog's appetite changes a little. Sometimes dogs might lose their appetites during the hot weather just like us humans - it’s nothing to worry about at all. However, if you see them developing symptoms of heat stroke, we’d recommend making an appointment to see your vet as soon as possible.

All of the meals that we make are freshly cooked and so just like human food, you wouldn’t want them sitting out at an ambient temperature for too long. If the weather is particularly hot, the food could spoil quicker than usual if left out, so you may wish to lift any uneaten food up off the floor and dispose of it, rather than leaving it for your dog to finish later on.
During the cold weather, if you would prefer to feed your dog their food a little warmed up rather than straight from the fridge, that's completely fine. There’s nothing quite like a warm meal on a chilly day! You can heat Butternut Box meals up by popping an unopened pouch in some warm water for a little while, or you can dish up the food into a bowl and give it a few moments in the microwave.
