Summer is an incredible season for outdoor fun with our dogs. However, as summer leads to warmer weather, pet owners need to take special precautions for their dogs.
Summer Care & Safety Tips:
Beat the Heat
Remember that a parked car can become dangerously hot in only a few minutes. Dogs are not efficient at cooling themselves. They cannot perspire and can only dispel heat by panting and through the pads of their feet. Panting and drinking water helps to cool them, but if they have only overheated air to breathe in a parked car, dogs can suffer brain and organ damage after just 15 minutes.
