Any time your pet is outside, make sure they have protection from heat and sun and plenty of fresh, cold water. In heat waves, add ice to water when possible. Tree shade and tarps are ideal because they don’t obstruct air flow. A doghouse does not provide relief from heat—in fact, it makes it worse.
Be careful out there..
Here’s the Heat Pet Safety Reminders
1. Shade and Water
Protect your pet from the sun’s rays and keep them hydrated.
2. No Cars
Never leave a pet in the car, not even with the window cracked.
3. No Asphalt
If it’s too hot for bare feet, it’s too hot for bare paws.
4. Limit Exercise
Don’t let playful pets over exerts themselves in the heat.
5. Heat Stroke
Excessive panting, discolored gums and mobility problems are signs. Seek veterinary attention immediately.
