Keeping yourself and your pets safe in the heat of the sun.



Well summer is finally here and even though it may not be hot hot yet we know it is coming. Something to think about is pets other than dogs. We always can tell when a dog is hot because they pant, but what about other animals, often it may not be so easy to spot. So what is a quick and easy way to tell? Where is your pet located? If it is hot for you it is hot for them and remember they are not usually styling in shorts and flip flops most pets have fur and even if they don't heat is still a factor as is direct sunlight. Did you know that pigs and other relatively hairless animals can get severe sunburns if they are not accustom to it? So remember take all the same precautions for your pet as you would for your human child and remember if your hot so are they.

Do not ever leave children and pets in a hot car in the summer. Heat builds up in the car and becomes even hotter than outside. This creates a deadly environment. Even with the windows cracked it can become extremely unsafe. If you see a child or animal left in a hot car call 911.
