It’s your responsibility as a cat and dog owner to really take good care of your pets. You need to feed them well, show them affection, and protect them from any harm. Owning a pet is an investment and the benefits you’ll reap will be worth it.
So, how do you keep your dogs feeling fresh under the scorching heat? Here’s how:
- Because it’s sunny, your cats and dogs will be thirstier than on not-so-sunny weathers. Give them extra amounts of water than usual.
- Check for any signs of a heatstroke. Its symptoms comprise of drooling, fever, lethargy, panting, vomiting, and collapsing. If you’ve got reason to believe your pet has a heatstroke, call your trusted veterinarian right away. Letting it pass will only cause severe and permanent damage, even death.
- An early morning or evening exercise will be ideal if midday’s heat is intense. If your pet’s going to stay outside for a long time, applying a sunscreen will do the trick.
