Summer Weather Tips

Summer is the season where many spend their time outdoors enjoying the hot weather and sunshine. However, our pets react differently to the increased UV rays and feel the heat more intensely and quicker. To avoid heat exhaustion, and a trip to a vet, keep your pet as cool as possible and watch out for signs of overheating. Have fun with your pooch by playing in pools and enjoying the shade together. When in doubt, keep your dog inside where it’s nice and cool.

Hot Weather

Dogs can overheat quickly in warmer temperatures and it’s important to keep your eye out for any signs of heat stroke. Symptoms can include:

  • Heavy Panting

  • Excessive Drooling

  • Laying Down/Taking Breaks Frequently

  • Heartrate Fast or Irregular

  • Lethargy or Stumbling

  • Vomiting/Diarrhea

  • Lack of Appetite

  • Glazed Eyes, Changes in Gum/Tongue Colour

Heat stroke is a scary thing and can lead to serious consequences. It is best to avoid overheating at all costs. A few ways to keep your dog cool are:

  • Provide fresh/cool water to drink

  • Have a doggy pool for you pooch to dip their paws in & play

  • Make sure there are shady spots for your dog to lay down in

  • Don’t over exhaust your dog by playing too much, especially during the

       hottest part of the day

  • Keep the house cool to provide relief from the outdoor heat

  • NEVER leave a dog in a parked car – temperatures can rise quickly even if the windows are down

  • Walk or exercise your pet in the cooler parts of the day, such as

       early morning or night time

  • Check the temperature of the sidewalk before going for a walk as

       hot cement can burn paws

  • Some breeds are more susceptible to overheating then others, learn more about your dog’s breed in case you need to be extra preventative/cautious

Summer is the time for fun but it’s also important to keep you and your pets safe from the heat. As long as you keep your dog cool and are aware of the symptoms, you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors with your furry friends.
