SUMMER CARE TIPS FOR YOUR PET
Maizie is enjoying her indoor pool and toys safely away from the heat.
*Provide plenty of fresh drinking water at all times.
*The temperature inside your car can easily climb to 120 degrees when a vehicle is parked in the summer sun. Never leave your pet unattended in a vehicle.
*Avoid excessive exercise during hot weather. Over-exertion can cause heat stress or stroke. Safe outdoor temperatures for pets vary by breed and size. Ask your veterinarian for a recommendation specific to your pet.
*Keep your pet well-groomed. Long hair and mats can decrease your pet’s ability to keep cool and contribute to skin disease. It is good to regularly brush your pet and trim hair as needed.
*Be sure and vaccinate your pet. Pets usually have more contact with other animals during warmer months and disease can spread more easily.
*Use monthly flea, tick, and heartworm preventives. Pets should take these preventives year-round. Remember, it’s often easier and cheaper to prevent parasites than treat them when a pet’s infected. Take your pet for fecal exams for internal parasites at least yearly.
*Lawn herbicides can also poison pets. Keep your pet out of the yard while treating your yard or be sure to ensure pet safety with the manufacture of the product before use.
