|1. Car Heat: Avoid heat exhaustion and don’t
leave your pet alone in the car. During warm weather, the inside of your
car can reach 120° in a matter of minutes, even if you're parked
in the shade.
2. Let the Fur Fly: Dogs with extremely thick or long fur should be trimmed during the hot summer months. Regular use of a FURminator Deshedding Tool can remove tremendous amounts of undercoat hair.
4. Water: Provide plenty of water and shade for your pets so they can stay cool. Be aware that water will vaporize on extremely hot days. Collapsible Water Bowls and Travel Water Bottles are convenient portable water sources for your pet.
5. Exercise at Dusk & Dawn: Pets need exercise but on very hot days, limit exercise to early morning or evening hours. Keep in mind that asphalt gets very hot and can burn your pet's paws. Protective Boots are a good way to protect paws from hot pavement.
6. Avoid Sunburn: Pets can get sunburned too, and your pet may require sunscreen on his or her nose and ear tips. Especially pets with light-colored noses or light-colored fur on their ears.
