Animal Safety Tips

Dog chartHOT DOGS ARE A NO NO.
Here are hot weather traveling tips from the ASPCA:
•Keep a bowl of water outside in the shade, and pack water and a bowl for dogs when traveling. Pets need lots of fresh, cool water in hot weather.
•Exercise your pet during the coolest parts of the day (dawn and dusk), and never immediately following a meal.
•Hot asphalt and tar can burn sensitive paw pads. Walk your pet on grass or dirt when possible.
•Provide shade when your pet is outside on a hot day.
•Get a veterinary checkup before traveling and make sure you have the necessary vaccination certificates for the area you will be visiting, as well as flea and tick treatments.
