Tips for Keeping Your Pet Safe During the Summer Months

Summer is a time for fun in the sun and spending time outdoors with your furry friend. However, the hot and humid weather can pose a number of risks to your pet's health and well-being. Here are some tips to keep your pet safe during the summer months:

  1. Keep your pet hydrated. Make sure your pet has access to fresh, clean water at all times, especially when they are outside. Consider investing in a Dog Water Bottle Folding Drinker that is easy to carry and use on the go.
  2. Avoid leaving your pet in a hot car. Even if it's just for a few minutes, the temperature inside a car can quickly become dangerously hot for your pet. Instead, leave your pet at home or bring them with you when you run errands.
  3. Protect your pet from the sun. Just like humans, pets can suffer from sunburn and heatstroke. Keep your pet in the shade during the hottest parts of the day and consider using a dog sunscreen on exposed areas like the nose and ears.
  4. Keep your pet cool. Provide your pet with plenty of opportunities to cool down, such as using an Ultra-Quiet Pet Cat Water Fountain or wet towels. You can also freeze treats for your pet to enjoy on a hot day.
  5. Be aware of your pet's limitations. Pets, especially those who are older or have health issues, may not be able to tolerate the heat as well as younger, healthy pets. Be aware of your pet's limitations and adjust their activity level accordingly.
  6. Invest in Elevated Dual Feeding Bowl to keep your pet comfortable and reduce the risk of choking or bloating. Additionally, consider using a Dog Puzzle Slow Feeder Bowl to promote healthy eating habits and prevent overeating.

By following these tips, you can help ensure your pet stays safe and healthy during the summer months. Remember to always monitor your pet's behavior and seek veterinary care if you notice any signs of heatstroke or dehydration.


Keep your pet safe and enjoy the summer!
