Summer is here – with a vengeance! As temperatures reach almost 100° F this week, keeping a close eye on your furry pets is very important.
Some tips to keep in mind this summer (or anytime it is over 70°F):
SHADE AND WATER: Protect your pets from the sun’s rays and keep them hydrated.
NO CARS: Never leave a pet in the car, not even with the window cracked.
NO ASPHALT: If it’s too hot for bare feet, it’s too hot for bare paws.
LIMIT EXERCISE: Don’t let playful pets over exert themselves in the heat.
HEAT STROKE: Excessive panting, discolored gums, and mobility problems are signs. See veterinary attention immediately!
