    Summer Safety Tips


    Summer is a time for both you and your pet to enjoy the sunshine and the outdoors, but this season can also offer situations that can endanger your pet.

    *You may be tempted to take your pet with you when you travel or run errands.  During warm weather, the inside of a vehicle can reach 120 degrees in a matter of minutes.

    *Driving with a dog in the back of a pick-up truck is very dangerous.  Flying debris can cause injury to your pet or your pet may be unintentionally thrown our of the bed of the truck.

    *Plenty of fresh water and shade is extremely important.  In the summer heat your pet can suffer from heat stroke or heat exhaustion.  Owners need to know the signs:  heavy panting, rapid pulse, glazed eyes.

    *Even during the summer pets need exercise and one must use caution.  Limit exercise to early morning and early evening hours.

    *Crowded summer events and pets do not mix well.  The loud noises and crowds combined with the heat can be stressful and dangerous,
