Dog Days of Summer Safety - Hydration

Just take it slow and easy – relax and enjoy your summer

We have another week of hot temps and high humidity ahead of us so be sure to keep those water dishes filled with fresh cool water and lap it up!

It’s so important to keep a special eye on our pets during these hot, humid summer days and part of staying safe is making sure our pets stay hydrated.
Be sure to have plenty of fresh water available for your pets at all times. If you’re going for a walk or on an adventure to the dog park be sure to take along plenty of water and a bowl.

Heatstroke in pets is very real. Symptoms can include:

  • Excessive panting
  • Muscle twitching
  • Anxious or dazed look
  • Vomiting
  • Weakness
  • Increased drooling
  • Diarrhea

Contact you vet immediately if you ever suspect heatstroke in your pet.

How does your pet stay cool during the hot summer days?
