How to Keep Pets Cool on Hot Summer Days


Are you staying cool during this heatwave?  Make sure your pets are too!  Here are a few tips to help keep pets cool and comfortable on hot summer days.

How to Keep Your Pet Cool:

  • Provide Plenty of Water – Make sure that your pets are staying hydrated on hot days, especially if you plan on spending a lot of time outdoors.
  • Walk Them in the Morning – Avoid walking your pets during the hottest part of the day.  Not only is a mid-day walk strenuous for you and your pet – the hot concrete can be harsh on their paws.
  • Keep Pets in the Shade – Make sure that your pet always has access to shade when spending time outdoors.
  • Never Leave a Pet in the Car – If you’re taking your pet with you on the road, never leave them alone in the car.  even leaving your pet alone for a short period of time can leave them overheated on hot days.
If you do notice signs of overheating in your cat, make sure that they stay calm and relaxed in a cool indoor place.  Cool your pet down and give them plenty of water.  Give our office a call if you are having any difficulty.
