Cool Pets

We can’t forget about our furry friend when the temperature starts to climb! Animals left outside in high temperatures can suffer from heat-related stress, burned paws, and even sunburn. To make sure your pet is staying cool provide them with plenty of clean, cool water throughout the day. Bring them inside during the warmest times of day (between 10 and 4) and allow them to rest in the coolest parts of the house. Don’t force animals to exercise outside when it’s hot; save exercising for the cooler times of day like the early morning, and evening. Lastly, never leave your pet in a parked car even if the windows are rolled down because the temperature
can still get too hot for animals to be comfortable.
