Tip of the Month: Hot Weather
  • A basic guideline for summer safety includes taking your dog for walks early in the morning or later in the evening to avoid the hottest parts of the day. This also prevents painful burns on footpads because he won’t be walking on hot blacktop or asphalt. It’s important to remember that brachycephalic breeds (dogs with short, pushed-in faces) and older or younger dogs are most susceptible to heat exhaustion.

  • In hot weather, dogs can overheat quickly. Stay out of high-energy environments when the temps are high!

    My daughter put Nutra Dents in the freezer. My dogs REALLY appreciated it, too. It’s CRAZY hot here. Also, I took a small bowl and froze the water. Turned it upside down in the water bowl. The dogs could lick the ice if they wanted, and it cooled the water in the bowl for quite a while.
