Take Care of Your Pets in the Heat

Sizzling summer has set in across America, and I wanted to take a moment to remind you that your pets might need special care as the temperature rises.

NEVER, EVER leave your pet(s) in a car during hot weather. Also avoid tying your pet(s) outside. When you walk your dog, be sure to carry water and a portable water bowl in case he or she gets overheated.

If your house gets hot, consider keeping the air conditioner and/or dehumidifier on for the safety of both your family and your pets. And if your pet exhibits any sign of illness, take him or her to the vet immediately.
