Summer Safety Tips for Pets
Dog Water Safety!
Planning on going to the beach, cottage or boating with your pet this summer?
Not all dogs are natural swimmers!
Some of us have been known to sink like a stone!
Even dogs that can swim may not be strong swimmers, they can get caught up in the current and tire easily.
Dogs can get excited on a boat, jump off and become injured when impacting the water, so it’s important to keep a PDF (life jacket, life vest) on them at all times.
Wear a dog life vest/jacket
Be prepared and be safe around water with your pets.
Contact your veterinarian immediately if you ever suspect injury to your pet.
Keep your pets out of hot cars!
