The Dog Days of Summer

Now that we’re quite literally in the dog days of summer – here are some tips to help keep your pets safe.

  • Plenty of clean, cool drinking water is a must at all times.
  • Never leave your pet in a parked car, not even for five minutes.
  • If a pet is overcome by heat (detected by excessive panting, is heavily salivating, and/or immobile) immerse him slowly in cool water to lower his body temperature, then contact a veterinarian. Never immerse a pet in ice cold water, it may cause him shock.
  • Keep Pets Groomed: Clip long or matted coats short to help your pet stay cool, but remember that pets, like people, can get sunburned too and coats should not be TOO short.
  • Health Check: Carefully go over your pet’s body at least once a week to check for fleas, ear mites and tiny bumps or cuts. Bring your pet to the vet for a summer check-up and use a good flea and tick repellent recommended by your vet.
  • Exercise: Exercise pets in the morning or evening when it’s cooler.
  • Prevent Burns: Dog pads burn easily, so avoid hot surfaces such as asphalt on hot days.
  • Identification: With the hotter weather, families and their pets are outside more often, increasing the chances of a pet getting lost. Make sure your pets always wear proper identification.
