Keeping Your Pets Safe During The Summer

 

Summer is officially still a couple of days away (even though it's felt like the dog days of summer in many places all June, including here in the Charlotte metro area).  If you have pets, it's a good time to think about some summer safety precautions for your fur-babies. From the ASPCA here are two great infographics showing how to protect your pets during the hot days of summer.

More Tips For Caring For Your Pet During Hot Summer Weather

  • Be sure to have plenty of water available for both your dogs and cats when it's hot as they can get dehydrated much more quickly. Be sure to carry water with you when out with your dog. 
  • Don't leave pets unsupervised around your pool. If your dog swims in your pool, hose it off to remove chlorine and chemicals as soon as possible.

  • Keep pets off of hot pavement and asphalt as much as possible to keep their pads from burning.

  • Keep your pets protected against mosquito bites by not skipping on heartworm medicine in the summer months.

  • Don't shave your longer haired dogs thinking it will cool them off... it might instead cause them to be sunburned.
  • If you keep windows open in your home, be sure to install screens securely so that dogs and cats don't fall out.
  • Know the signes of heat stroke in dogs and cats.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®,CRS, good morning, Paul... that's so true. And as animals can't tell you what's wrong in so many words we have to be vigilant (and hopefully not even put them into situations where heat stroke would be possible).

Endre Barath, Jr. good morning, Endre... it is a shame that we have to repeat this kind of message to people with pets (and kids, for that matter). It's why I repeat some version of these posts annually.

Gita Bantwal  good morning, Gita. I figure if just one person reads and heeds the warnings and keeps a pet from suffering, it was a successful post.

Nina, I love this post and hope many read it. About 4 years ago after calling animal control, I broke a window to get two small dogs out of a scorching hot car. I get so angry and upset when I hear a pet lost their life because their owner left them in a hot car. There's just no excuse.

Amanda S. Davidson hi Amanda... isn't it just unbelievable that people are so stupid and uncaring to keave animals and kids in a hot car. And with all the publicity about this for so many years, it's amazing how often it still happens.

Taking care of animals is a full time job! Summer and heat is not the time to forget that their lives depend on people more than most people realize. 

This is great advice!

Good tips. It must be tough to be a pet owner in some of these really hot climates.  I saw today it's 111 degrees in Las Vegas!  That's just crazy hot.

Jan Green  good morning, Jan, and thanks. We may not be as hot at AZ here in Charlotte, but it's still pretty hot and we have lots of days in high 80's which feel 10 degrees warmer.
