5 Hot Pet Care Tips for the Summer

Send enquiry

Summer is a great time, but the hot heat creates some unique summer pet care problems. Although wild animals are highly adapted to the environment, companion animals can be just as vulnerable to excessive heat as their humans. What does this signify for your animal? Pet safety should be a major priority when the temperatures rise to dangerous levels. Here are 5 tips for being safe while having fun with your pet this summer:

Take care of the heat. 
A hot summer day may be exhausting for creatures other than humans. However, unlike you, your pet has a limited tolerance for heat. Dogs expel heat through their paw pads and panting, but humans may sweat through all of their skin. Dehydration may also be a major issue for dogs in hot weather. Animals with flat features, such as Pugs and Persian cats, cannot pant as well and are thus more prone to heat stroke, according to the ASPCA. You should also keep a watch on aged or overweight dogs, as well as creatures suffering from heart and lung illness.In the summer, make sure Fido and Fluffy have enough of fresh, cold water to drink, and avoid letting them run about outside during the warmest portions of the day.

Antifreeze should be avoided. 
When automobiles overheat in the summer, antifreeze can seep out, forming pools on the ground that your dog can easily lick up and consume. The sweet taste of antifreeze is appealing to dogs and cats, but ingesting this deadly toxin can be fatal. Keep an eye out for your neighbours' automobiles and puddles on your street, and keep your dogs away from them.

Determine whether your pet need sunscreen. 
Sunburn can occur in certain dogs, particularly those with short fine hair and pink skin. Consult your veterinarian about which sunscreens are best for your pet's skin, and then apply sunscreen as part of your summer regimen. Use sunscreen and insect repellents that are not intended for use on animals.Certain sunscreens, according to the ASPCA, can induce drooling, vomiting, diarrhoea, increased thirst, and lethargy in dogs.

Exercise water safety. 
Water safety, like other parts of summer pet care, is all about planning ahead of time. Although it is enjoyable to bring your pet to the beach or pool to be cool together, always keep a watchful check on your pet when they are in or near water. Even a skilled swimmer may struggle to exit a pool or become entangled in ropes and other impediments. Consider a doggy life preserver for more dangerous summer activities with your dog, such as boating. It might turn out to be a wise investment in his safety.

Keep the pests at bay—safely.
 Ticks and other summer insects are another summer pet safety concern. Bugs can not only carry illnesses, but the methods used to repel them can also be harmful to your outdoor pet's health. Fertilizers and insecticides may help keep your grass looking fantastic, but they may be extremely hazardous to your pet. To limit the number of ticks and other insects in places where your pets play, keep the grass mowed short. When walking your dog, keep an eye out for fertiliser warnings on the lawns of your neighbours. Consult your veterinarian about the best ways to protect your pet against fleas, ticks, and other insects that thrive during the summer.
