Summertime is a fun time for humans, but for our furry friends the heat can be unbearable and even dangerous. To keep them cool during summer, consider following these tips:
- If you are outside, always make sure that they have plenty of shade and shelter from the sun. It is also important to give them plenty of cool water.
- Any food that is good for your dog may be frozen and then stuffed into a Kong.
- Walk your dogs earlier in the day and later at night when the temperature is much cooler.
- Another important tip to remember is to never leave your dogs in a hot car. Life-threatening heat stroke occurs when a dog’s body temperature reaches more than 106°F.
