Since summer is now here, you may be wondering how to keep your pet cool during these scorching temperatures. Goettl Air Conditioning, based out of Las Vegas, Nevada, has a few tips for you to help your pet during these hot months. Concrete, asphalt, any surface that can retain heat can hurt your pet’s paws. If you can not hold the back of your hand to the surface for at least 10 seconds, consider re scheduling your walks to the evening or early morning hours. If your pet has a short, light colored coat, you may want to apply pet safe sunscreen to ears and the nose. Proper grooming during these months promotes air and blood circulation.
If they are kept outside, make sure that they have access to shade and cool water, since pets do not cool down the same way we humans do. You may even want to consider having a doggie pool, as it is great fun for your pet and a great way to keep them cool! If you keep your pet in the garage, please be aware that the intense summer heat can expose radiator leaks and other hazards, leaving a sweet tasting yet harmful pool of liquid that can cause an emergency health situation.
