Taking precautions with high temps
Summer officially arrived this weekend and we’ve got the sweat to prove it.
People sweat to regulate our body temperature but animals don’t. Your pet has to cool himself through his mouth. That’s why you see your dog panting like crazy when the temperatures climb.
If you have an outside dog, especially if it’s on a chain, make sure it can get to good, deep shade and has plenty of fresh, cool water.
If your pooches are inside animals, used to the air conditioning, walk them in the cool of the morning or late afternoon, especially if they are old, overweight or have health problems.
Please don’t leave your animals in a parked car. They may love to ride with you but their lives are in peril while you run in the store for a minute. If it’s already in the ’90s outside, the heat in a closed car can soar to well over 100 degrees in minutes.
Heat stroke is life threatening for both you and your dogs. Take precautions when the heat rises.
