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.
