Heat Pet Safety

A Reminder for the weekend from All Animal Care clinic…
Stay safe in this heat. If it’s too hot for you then it’s too hot for your pets.
What temperature is too hot for a dog?

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.
