Summer is almost upon us and it's bringing the heat! Here are some tips for staying safe during the next few months.
• When taking your pet for a walk, use the palm of your hand to get a read on the ground's temperature. Hot for hands is often too hot for paws.
• Always carry water with you to keep your pet hydrated.
• If you and your pet exercise outdoors, take advantage of cooler dawn and dusk temperatures.
• And it goes without saying that you should never leave your pet unattended in a hot car - even for a quick errand.
Be aware of your surroundings and make sure summer is as safe as it is fun!
