Tips for Keeping your Pet Safe in the Heat
Dogs can only rid their body of heat while panting. They do not have sweat glands - as humans do - except for a few on their feet. Panting alone is not enough when the temperature soars.
We have a few recommendations for you and your family to help your dog have a happy and healthy summer:
Make sure you provide plenty of water.
Never leave your dog in the car - even for a few minutes - in the heat. Just a few short minutes in these conditions can lead to irreversible organ damage or death.
Keep your pet from the damaging rays of the sun. If you have a white, or lighter colored dog, areas of the body (tops of ears and nose) can sunburn. Applying a sunscreen (SPF above 15) may help prevent sunburn.
Watch out for heatstroke. If you do vigorous exercise with your dog, make sure you exercise in the cooler hours of the morning or evening.
Better yet, go swimming with your dog! Play fetch with water toys. This way both of you can keep cool!
Fortunately, many pet product manufacturers know how difficult it can be to keep a pet cool in summer and now make products to help pet owners.
