It’s hot again!

It’s hot again!

Happy weekend and 90 degree weather again.  This is the time of summer where the mornings are cool and the afternoons are hot.  Then there is the times where it cools down a bit during the day for a week or so like we saw last week.  This weather can be hard on pets.  Remember these tips for this hot weather:

  • Dogs can have gatorade if they happen to get too overheated.
  • Limit exposure during the 10-4pm hours when the day is the hottest.
  • Ice cubes are a great addition to their water bowls.
  • If your dogs like water, a kiddie pool can be a nice playtime for them.
  • Remember that panting is a way dogs cool themselves, but it is a sign to you that they are hot and should rest in a cooler environment.
  • If you have a senior dog, overweight pet or a chronic condition, you need to watch them closer and only have them out for bathroom breaks.
  • Evenings and early morning are best times for play with your pets outdoors.
