Here are some helpful tips for summer:
-Clipping and brushing your pet is a good
-It is essential that your pets have
adequate shade to rest in at this time of
year. Provide a shady spot on the eastern
side of your home with plenty of water – Unlimited supply of full water bowls
placed in shady areas.
– A clam shell pool in a shady spot is a
great summer treat for a hot dog
– Never leave dogs in cars unattended. -Jog or walk with your dog early in the
morning or in the cool of the evening
when the temperature has dropped.
Short nosed breeds of dogs, such as Bull Dogs,Staffordshire Bull Terriers, Pugs and Pekingese, are very susceptible to heat stress.
Obese and geriatric dogs and cats are at risk too, as well as pets with respiratory disease.
If your pet is affected please contact us immediately and cool the animal by placing it in a room temperature (not iced) water bath or by
hosing it. Place the wet animal in front of the fan and apply ice packs to its head. Treatment needs to be intensive and prompt. Heat stress is a major
concern over summer. Please be careful with your pets!!!
