With the summer heat upon us, we’re all concerned about finding ways to stay cool this season. The same should be true for our pets. It seems that every summer, we hear stories on the news about pets being left in sweltering cars, though there are laws that should prevent that. Protecting our pets from the heat is just as important to us at Arrowhead Animal Health as protecting them with our cohesive and adhesive tapes and wraps.
As we are getting into the “dog days of summer”, we’re taking a look at some tips and tricks to help keep our pets cool this summer.
We think this article from The Telegraph does an excellent job at outlining some key ways to keep our pets safe in the heat, including:
- Not keeping pets in hot cars
- Avoiding taking your pet outside during mid-day peak heat times and avoiding walking on hot surfaces
- Keeping your pets hydrated
- Grooming them—animals with long or thick hair are at a risk of overheating
- Keeping them cool—garden hoses and fans are great
