Keeping your pet safe in the heat

Too much time in the sun can put pets at risk for heatstroke. It’s critical to know how to protect your pet from the nearly inescapable heat.

– Know your pet may not enjoy prolonged periods outdoors. Let your pets go inside to cool off.

– Take walks in the early morning or evening hours to avoid the hottest temperatures of the day.

– Avoid running or biking with your pet during summer months. You may not realize how hot your pet is until it’s too late.

– Be careful of pavement and blacktop surfaces, which can retain heat and burn your pet’s paws.
