Heat Safety Tips For Your Pet This Summer

Summer is here and our pets can suffer from the high desert temperatures as much as we do. Heatstroke, paw burns, dehydration, and breathing difficulty are common problems we treat at this time of year. Please never walk your pet on hot asphalt or any surface that you would not walk on in bare feet. And no outdoor exercising when it is over 90 degrees. 

Remember, pets can't sweat to cool off. Geriatric pets and ones with chronic conditions such as diabetes, Cushings, obesity, or respiratory problems are even more susceptible to the heat, so please keep them indoors! And of course NEVER leave your pet in a parked car. Hang in there, the monsoons will be here soon!
