Keeping Pets Safe in Extreme Heat

Extreme #heat is especially dangerous for our animal companions, says the New York Times. Walk dogs early in the morning or after sunset when temperatures are cooler, avoid strenuous activity and seek shade. Carry water and a collapsible dish to keep your pet hydrated. If your dog slows down, let them take a break — and if he or she shows signs of #overheating such as excessive panting, lethargy or a deep-red tongue, get them to a cool water bath fast. If signs of distress persist, go to a veterinarian immediately. And never leave your pet unattended inside a closed car; a car’s cabin temperature can rise to dangerous levels even when the outside air is temperate. #BeatTheHeat
