Protecting Your Furry, Feathered & Scaly Friends This Summer

Ok, so having your fur baby in your bridal party may seem like torture but nothing is worse on your pets than the heat of the upcoming summer months. It is key to be prepared as well as observant of your pet’s mood and behavior when it’s blistering hot out. While most of it may seem obvious, it does bare repeating for the sake of your beloved animals ; )

  • NEVER leave an animal in your car unattended. Especially when the mercury is rising. If you know you have lots of errands to run, leave your pet at home where he or she is comfy and has plenty of water. Even if you leave the windows cracked on a hot day, that is mega dangerous. Oh, and don’t think that you can get away with leaving the car running with the a/c full blast either. Pets who are left in hot cars even briefly can suffer from heat exhaustion, heat stroke, brain damage, and can even die. Don’t think that just because you’ll be gone “just a minute” that your pet will be safe while you’re gone. Signs of heatstroke are panting, staring, anxious expression, refusal to obey commands, warm/dry skin, high fever, rapid heartbeat, vomiting, collapse. Contact your vet immediately if you see any of these in your pet.
  • Don’t tote your pets around either. Ok, so you’re not leaving them in the car, that’s good. But plopping them into your bag or making them walk around for hours in the sun while you shop, etc isn’t so great either. Like children they will increasingly get more uncomfortable and if your focus is elsewhere, you may miss the signs that they may be falling ill, dehydrating, etc. A day at the beach or a hike is fine but be sure to bring plenty of water and seek shade often.
  • Pets can sunburn too! Be mindful of their ears, noses and even unexposed skin. A peely, burnt pet is an unhappy one. And skin cancer in pets isn’t uncommon so be safe with them in the sun!
  • Don’t overexert pets. A little fun and games is fun but hot and humid days can really cause harm on their own and working them up is not wise.
  • If you don’t have air conditioning in your house, or are doing your best to conserve energy, be sure that your pet’s area is cool. Put a fan close to them, make sure there is some cross ventilation and always fill their water bowls.
  • Leaving town? Think your baby is independent enough to be left for a day or so? Hmmmm, well, make sure that whomever is caring for your pet, even if just to feed them, pops in more frequently than normal. Leave information for your vet and tell you pet sitter what your pet’s disposition is usually like so that if they notice a big difference in appetite, etc, they should call you right away. I get it, boarding is expensive but get a groups together that helps each other out when someone goes on vacation. People with pets tend to care for your pets much more attentively because they know how to deal with things that might come up. It’s c...
