We’ve entered the season of endless opportunities for outdoor fun. While many pets are content to hunker down at home, others are quite involved in all manner of activities. Swimming, hiking, and traveling are all worthwhile seasonal endeavors, but they can also place your pet at risk. But don’t worry – with some planning and preparation, pets and heat safety will be a regular part of your summer routine.
The heat is on, and the rising mercury means that our pets are at an increased risk for heat-related illness. Dehydration and heatstroke are no joke, and it’s up to us to protect our four-legged friends during the summer months. Besides providing plenty of fresh water and shade, and never leaving a pet in a parked car, chilled or frozen treats are a fun and tasty way to help pets keep cool.
The ideas for summer pet treats are nearly endless, and you are only limited by your imagination! The team at Oakhurst Veterinary Hospital came up with our favorite healthy options, sure to delight even the pickiest pet.
