Pets need extra care during summer Public Record Summer has just arrived and it has already been getting into the mid and upper 90s. Just as we humans need to keep cool and hydrated in the summer, so do our pets. Unlike humans, animals do not have sweat glands to help cool them off when they get hot. This is why it is so important that we take extra precautions to keep pets safe and healthy in the summer. One of the things to, think about is when you are walking your dog. Be sure the surface you are walking on is not too hot for your pet. You might not feel the heat through your shoes, but your pet can feel it on their bare paw pads. To avoid this, try walking your pet in the morning or later in the evening after it has started to cool down. If your pets stay outside during the day, please make sure that they have plenty of shade and fresh, cool water. Remember when the temperature goes up, so does the chance that your pet can become overheated. Some of the warning signs that your pet has become overheated are: • Excessive panting or difficulty breathing • Body temperature can reach 104 degrees or , mpre Cop Corner • Depression, seizures, coma or walking in a stupor (acting as if it is drunk). This is the beginning of a heat stroke. • Collapse If your pet has any of the warning signs, it is important that you get your pet out of the direct heat. Placing cold, wet towels on your pet's neck, chest and abdomen will help cool it off. You can also run cool water from a hose over your pet or put a fan on it to help cool it off. If you think your pet is having a heat-related illness, contact your family veterinarian immediately. Our pets are quite often a loving member of the family. Please help your pets stay safe and cool this summer with plenty of shade and cool water.
