Here are a few standard safety tips for your pets this summer.

Keep It Cool

It’s easy to lose track of time while you’re out enjoying the summer weather, but depending on where you live, the amount of time that you spend outside can get incredibly dangerous. States that break temperatures over 100 call for more water and more attention to signs and symptoms that could be pointing to heat strokes. In order to avoid this, make sure that your pets are hydrated and cool while spending time outside.

Bug Off

Mosquitoes and ticks are just as big of a harm to our pets as they are to us. Make sure to check for any ticks on your pet after you’ve spent time outdoors. Because of their fur, it’s much harder to notice and remove any ticks unless you’re taking the time to look for them. There are plenty of products that you can find that will help make doing so, so much easier.

Water Safety

Not every dog is a fan of the water, so knowing if your pet is, or isn’t, is the first. For pets that are fans of the water, always check to make sure that the water is clean and that they aren’t in danger by jumping into the body of water. Life jackets are always a great option to utilize also.

Don’t let your pets miss out on the fun this summer! Take these tips into consideration and feel confident that your pets are happy and safe while they venture with you!
