8 summer safety tips for pets

1 Always ensure pets have access to water.

2 Keep pets away from fertilizers, insecticides, and even some brands of mulch (in large amounts), as they can be toxic.

3 Ensure pets have plenty of shade. And watch the weather. If a heat advisory is announced, it’s best to keep pets indoors until temperatures cool off.

4 Watch for warning signs of heatstroke: excessive panting and drooling, bright red gums, balance problems, lethargy, and labored breathing. If a pet is struggling or obviously is suffering from heatstroke, cool it in a pool or pond and call the veterinarian immediately.  

5 Never, ever leave pets in an enclosed vehicle, because cars can heat up to over 100 degrees in mere minutes. If you see an animal left alone in a vehicle, don’t hesitate to call animal control for assistance.

6 Be sure pets are wearing updated identification tags or a microchip should they get loose.

7 Schedule outside activities in the mornings and evenings when it’s still cool, and watch out for hot pavement, which can burn pets’ paws.

8 Keep an eye on pets while swimming—not all dogs are good swimmers.
