More Tips For Caring For Your Pet During Hot Summer Weather
- Be sure to have plenty of water available for both your dogs and cats when it's hot as they can get dehydrated much more quickly. Be sure to carry water with you when out with your dog.
Don't leave pets unsupervised around your pool. If your dog swims in your pool, hose it off to remove chlorine and chemicals as soon as possible.
Keep pets off of hot pavement and asphalt as much as possible to keep their pads from burning.
Keep your pets protected against mosquito bites by not skipping on heartworm medicine in the summer months.
- Don't shave your longer haired dogs thinking it will cool them off... it might instead cause them to be sunburned.
- If you keep windows open in your home, be sure to install screens securely so that dogs and cats don't fall out.
- Know the signes of heat stroke in dogs and cats.
