Feeling hot, hot, hot…


Feeling hot, hot, hot…
With anticipated local high temperatures in the 90’s this week (over 100 with the humidity index!), please remember to consider your pets’ needs, too!

*** Never leave a dog in a parked car. Temperatures can turn deadly within minutes.

*** When walking, sticking to the cooler times of day. Hot asphalt can burn your dog’s paws. If you can’t count to 5 with your own hand touching the ground, it’s too hot for your dog!

*** Be sure to provide your pets with plenty of fresh water. Add ice for extra coolness.

*** If your dog is to be outside for any length of time, be sure there is ample shade and access to water.

*** If you take your dog to the beach, bring fresh water along. A dog cannot drink salt water.

Remember: Hot dogs belong on the grill, not in your cars or out in this weather!
