Don’t let your furry companion become overheated during the hot summer months.

Here are some tips for keeping your dog safe during the hot summer months (younger and older dogs are very sensitive to extreme heat):

  • Pets can get overheated quickly, so give them plenty of fresh, clean water when it’s hot outdoors. Make sure your pets have a shady place to get out of the sun, such as trees, umbrellas (metal) and/or a small play pool (2-4 inches of water).  Keep them indoors when it’s extremely hot.
  • Never leave your animals alone in a parked vehicle. “On a hot day, a parked car can become a furnace in no time—even with the windows open—which could lead to a fatal heat stroke.”
