Tip #4

Stay Cool – Stay Hydrated

The temperature is soaring and the humidity is high 🌡

We are in the midst of a heat wave🔥

Dog Days of Summer Safety - Staying Cool, Stay Hydrated

Stay cool, stay hydrated!

My fellow furfriends, please limit your outdoor exercise and consider indoor activities on hot days like today!

Stay cool and safe inside with air conditioning or fans and don’t forget to drink plenty of fresh water.

Heatstroke is a very real issue for dogs, especially brachycephalic and flat faced breeds like me.

I believe I’ll have my snacks here today

So just sit back, relax, put your paws up in front of that fan and let your humans wait on you for the day 😉

Be safe, stay cool and contact your veterinarian immediately if you ever suspect heatstroke in your pet.

Tell us what does your dog do to keep active when it’s too hot and humid to safely play outside?
