Hydration is the Key Today For Our Pets

Monday, July 2, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

This is the time of year that we need to keep hydrated. The forecast on Delmarva today¬† 95 inland and¬† heat indices of 105 degrees. I went outside to water the plants this morning and my glasses steamed up. If your pets go outdoors, it is key that they have access to water. Keep a filled water bowl outside. If you’re taking your dog to the park, take a bottle of water and a bowl and allow him to drink often. Dogs can suffer from heat stroke like humans. Limit the time outdoors today. Take your dog for shorter walks and if he shows signs that the heat is affecting him like panting, heavy breathing etc. Take him inside immediately, give him plenty of water and apply cool compresses.

Use common sense during this extreme heat. Think about your pets as well as yourself!

Remember, your pets count!
