Hot Weather Tips to avoid emergency situations and heatstroke in pets
• If your dog is not used to exercise, go slow and ease into it. Just because your pet used to jog in the fall doesn’t mean he’s ready for summer. Make sure exercise becomes part of the daily routine to keep them healthy.
• Exercise early in the morning and late evening when it is a bit cooler. Avoid the midday heat. It can be dangerous.
• Be careful of pad burns on hot pavement and metal surfaces, this can make your pet uncomfortable and/or sensitive. If possible, try to walk on the grass or buy booties.
• Offer small amounts of fresh cool (without ice) water frequently during the walk. Make sure plenty of water is available in an unspillable container throughout the day.
• During the walk watch your pet for signs of tiring and too much panting. Panting with the tongue out of his mouth completely tells you it’s time for a break.
• Try to walk in areas where there is shade.
