Hot Weather Tips For Your Pet – Keeping your pet protected in the heat is very important. Whether you have a dog, cat, horse or box turtle you want to make sure they are healthy and hydrated and comfortable, especially during the warm summer months. Providing clean, available water is important but there are also a few other tips you should keep in mind. Taking your pet to the vet for a spring check up assures you they are in good health before the things heat up. Your vet can also prescribe flea and tick medication for the upcoming months where the pesky summer insects come out. +
Light hair trimming is fine for dogs and cats but completely shaving your pet allows their skin susceptible to sun damage. Pets should always have a shady rest area to relax when they are outdoors. Making sure you follow these tips along with knowing the warning signs for overheating in pets (weakness, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, etc) is important for a fun and safe summer for everyone.
