How to Keep Pets Cool on Hot Days


We are loving the warm summer weather!  Now that you will be spending more time outside with your pets in the upcoming months, here are a few tips to help keep your pets cool as you enjoy time outdoors.

How to Keep Pets Cool:

  • Take Walks in the Morning/Evening – While walks keep pets healthy, we recommend taking your pet for a walk during hours when they have access to shade.  The sidewalk can get hot in the afternoon.  Walk your pet in the morning or evening instead!
  • Provide Access to Shade – If you do find yourself outdoors during the daytime with your pet, make sure that you provide them a shady place to hide from the sun.  
  • Stay Hydrated – Make sure that your pets have access to plenty of fresh, clean water on hot days – especially if they are spending time outdoors.  It’s easy for pets to become dehydrated while they pant to cool down.
  • Offer a Frozen Treat – Give your pet some frozen ice cubes to lick to stay cool.  They even make specialty dog ices and ice creams that your pet can enjoy as a treat on hot days.
