Now that summer’s here, it’s important to be aware of the dangers excessive heat pose to your pet.

Pets and Vehicles
Never leave your pet inside your car. Vehicles heat up to dangerous levels quickly in the summer months. Parking in the shade, opening windows, and even leaving the air conditioning on won’t prevent a dangerous situation.

Make sure your pet has plenty of access to fresh water. Excessive panting, lethargy, loss of skin elasticity, and refusal to drink or drinking too much and vomiting are all signs of dehydration. If you suspect your pet is dehydrated, contact us right away.

Keep these tips in mind and you and your pet will be cool and safe this summer!
