Summer Safety Tips

Tips for a safe summer with your furry friend:

  • NEVER leave your pet in the car this time of year, even with the engine and air conditioning running
  • ALWAYS check the temperature of the pavement before heading out for a walk and during your walk
  • Exercise your pet during the cooler morning or evening hours
  • ALWAYS provide plenty of cool, fresh water
  • Outdoor pets need to have constant access to drinking water and shade, bring them inside during extreme heat
  • PLAN AHEAD for Independence Day celebrations.  If your pet requires sedation for fireworks, please call or email our office so we can prepare medication BEFORE it is needed.  Also, double-check your pets’ ID tags to make sure they are up to date.  More pets go missing this time of year.
  • If you plan to board your pet this summer check with the kennel’s requirement regarding necessary vaccinations and fecal examinations
  • Keep up with heartworm prevention and flea/tick prevention

As always, we are happy to answer any questions you have about your pet’s safety.  Enjoy, these long, lazy days of summer and try to keep cool!
