Healthy Hot Weather Care for Your Pet

While the day’s high temperatures may no longer be running into the triple digits, the heat is not over yet. By following a few simple safety measures, you can ensure the health of your pet even during hot weather. Avoid heat-related illnesses by never leaving your pet in a parked car, even with the windows cracked open. Provide plenty of water for your pet and make sure there are shaded areas available if your pet goes outdoors. You can also keep your pet cool by brushing him or her regularly to get rid of excess fur.
