Warm Weather Safety Month

Checklist:

Annual Exam – Start by a visit to the veterinarian for a spring or early summer check up! It is important to make sure your pet is in good health.
Provide Water - Always provide plenty of fresh cool water at all times for your pet.
Provide Shade - if outside or exposed to the sun, be certain they can get shade from a dog house, trees or a porch.
Practice Water Safety - keep pets supervised while near a pool or other body of water-not all dogs are goos swimmers!
Have Street Smarts - when the tempature is very high, the asphalt on the roads can heat up and burn the pads on your pet’s feet. Don’t let them walk on it for a long period of time.
Car Safety - on a hot day, (even with the windows open) a car can reach a deadly temperature in 10 minutes. Do not leave your pet in a parked car, even for a quick minute to go into a store. If you see someone else’s car with a pet locked inside, call your local police. You may save a pet’s life!
Know the Treatment - if your pet becomes overheated, get him some help right away! Try to lower his temperature as soon as possible. You can place your pet in a kiddie pool and let cool water from a hose gently run over his body.
