Summer in the south brings warmer temperatures that will only continue to rise as we move into the peak months of the season. Because of this it goes without saying that the summer heat can be overwhelming and even dangerous if we don’t remember to stay cool and hydrated. This weather can also be equally perilous if not even more so for our pets. Our furry family members can suffer from overheating and sunburns just like we can. To help keep our beloved companions safe this summer let’s go over four ways to take care of our pets during the warmer months:
A good rule of thumb to follow when it comes to our pet’s safety is that if it is too hot for us it is too hot for them. If the pavement is too hot for you to walk on with bare feet, if the car is too hot for you to sit in, or if it is too hot for you to be outside then it is too hot for them too. We always want to do our best to take care of our pets and understandably so, they are family. Though the summertime brings some risks that we need to watch out for it does not mean that we can’t enjoy the season with our furry friends. We just need to remember to stay cool and stay safe.
