The Heat is On! Time to Protect Our Pets

Friday, May 3, 2019

It’s that time of year again. We had a high of 87 yesterday on Delmarva and the hear and humidity is at our door step. Once again, I’m publishing guidelines to keep your pet safe during the hot Summer months.

  • Provide cool and clean water for your pet at all times for your pet, especially when he’s out doors.
  • Never leave your pet in a parked car in warm weather. The temperature can reach 120 degrees and over in just a few minutes.
  • Limit exercise to the morning or evening and make sure that the exercise is light.
  • If your dog is at home on a hot day, always leave  the air conditioner on for him when you’re out.
  • Make sure that your pet is vaccinated against infectious disease and is on a monthly heartworm, flea and tick control program.
  • Keep your pets kennel cage clean and well ventilated. If he’s in it outside, always make sure that it’s in the shade.
  • Herbicides and pesticides can kill your pet. Keep your dog out of the yard for at least three days after your lawn is treated.

Remember, your pets count!
