Summer is a whole new ball game. It’s fun, it’s hot and brings out a host of potential dangers for your dog. In time for summer season, we created a list of ways you can protect your dog in the hottest time of the year.
Countless dog owners have underestimated just how deadly summer can be for dogs. Sadly, there have been many times when a dog owner’s mistake cost his dog’s life. We don’t want this to happen to you or to any dog lover for that matter so we’re here to help you keep your dog safe.
Please take note that unlike humans, dogs do not have sweat glands that will help keep them cool. This is why dogs overheat very fast, making them prone to heat strokes.
Here are several steps you can take to ensure your dog’s safety this summer.
1. Hydrate and take shade – When you’re out in the sun, make sure to always bring fresh and clean drinking water for your dog. Also, don’t walk under the sun for long periods. Take shade from time to time.
