We hope you all are enjoying your summer. Here are some reminders about how to keep your pets safe in the summer heat.
• Never leave your pet in an unattended vehicle (even with the car running or windows down)
• Limit exercise on hot days. Go early in the morning or late in the evening instead.
• Provide ample shade and water.
• Don’t rely on a fan to “cool” your pet off. Did you know pets sweat primarily through their feet?
