Heat Pet Safety

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.

Heat Pet Safety

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!
