Dog Days of Summer Safety
Today is officially the first day of summer!
While you’re enjoying the hot,hazy, lazy, sunny days of summer, lets not forget the importance of protecting our pets and pet safety!
This is the first in a series of six weekly posts highlightingÂ Summer Safety Tips for Pets
Â Tip #1
No Hot Dogs in Cars!
The only place a âhot dogâ belongs is on a plate at a BBQ or picnic!
Never, ever, leave your dog alone in a car, even for a minute, even for a quick errand, even with the windows down!
Temperatures in cars quickly rise to extreme, unsafe and even deadly conditions.
Take it from this pug, we areÂ much happier at home where its cool and safe.
Ask you veterinarian what the symptoms of heatstroke in pets are, and contact your veterinarian immediately if you ever suspect heatstroke in your pet.
What fun and cool activities would your dog rather do than be waiting in a hot car?
