Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate!

Much of the country is experiencing an excessive heat warning. This morning when I woke up, and the temperature was already 82 degrees with the dew point at 79. The high is expected to reach the mid to upper 90’s. This is oppressive heat and pet owners should take heed to the fact that their pets could be in big trouble if they don’t stay hydrated. Luckily we have two cats who are always indoors so we don’t have an issue but for those who own dogs, I wouldn’t recommend much time outdoors at all today. Take a break from exercise and only take your dog out for a brief walks. It’s always a good idea to take along some water with you. Our canine friends can get dehydrated very fast. I would not recommend taking your dog in the car today. If you park for even a few moments, your car will become like a furnace!  If you must take your dog in the car, make the ride brief, take along plenty of water and do not for any reason leave him in the car unattended. Not even for a minute! Use common sense!!  Water is key and have it available to your best friend at all times!

Remember, your pets count!
